About the 57th Street Art Fair


The 57th Street Art Fair is a two-day outdoor celebration of the visual arts held in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, adjacent to the University of Chicago campus and President Barack Obama's home. Considered the oldest juried art fair in the Midwest, our fair typically features the work of 250 exhibitors. Most are returning artists, but each year between 50 and 75 new exhibitors are invited to participate by a jury made up of collectors, critics, curators and artists. The goal of the 57th Street Art Fair is to provide a venue for creators of quality fine art and fine craft to meet with the art-buying public. The 57th Street Art Fair is a tax-exempt organization and all proceeds are used to produce the annual Fair and to help fund other related non-profit, art-related activities.  This event is FREE to attend!

Join the fair's artists for demonstrations of their process of art making at the corner of 56th Street and Kimbark Avenue. This great opportunity will give you insight on different art types like glass blowing, jewelry making, photography, printmaking, painting, sculpture, wood, ceramics and fiber art.
