This year I will be at Architectural Artifacts during the Ravenswood ArtWalk. Iâ€™ve heard of this venue so much and never been inside, so this will be a great introduction to all the raves. This year the 15th annual Ravenswood ArtWalk is held September 10 and 11 from 11 am to 6 pm each day. This is a weekend filled with local art, local music, local food and local brews! Stretching from Irving Park Rd to Leland along Ravenswood Avenue, the ArtWalk features open studios and galleries, indoor pop-up markets and a street festival center with live music, a children’s corner, food truck roundup and the return of everyone’s favorite: the Begyle Brewing Urban Craft Beer Garden!Â
