18th Ravenswood ArtWalk this weekend

Time flies when you’re having fun! Fresh off the Flora, Fauna and Fascination opening, I am now gathering what remains of my swarm, along with new babybees, to prepare for the Ravenswood ArtWalk.

This year the Ravenswood ArtWalk takes place from 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday, September 14 & 15. I will return to the Hayes Properties Pop-Up Market, which is venue #2 on the handy-dandy tour map. The official address is 4043 North Ravenswood Avenue, just before the street fair entrance on Belle Plaine.

The beer tent has a very convenient location to us, so you can grab a brewski and then stroll into the shade to see our fabulous wares.

Hayes Properties is a full service management and investment company focusing on commercial and multi-family residential properties in Chicago. This historic industrial building was once the home of Manz printing company and has been beautifully restored by our partners at Hayes Properties.

Shop from a dozen local artists in the first floor atrium and keep an eye out as you enter for Frank Lloyd Wright’s Garden Sprite, a replica of one of the statues designed by Wright in 1913 for Chicago’s Midway Gardens.
