About About

The West Town Chamber of Commerce, Dovetail, and Seek proudly present the West Town Art Walk

The West Town Art Walk is an annual event celebrating art in all forms—visual, musical, culinary, and otherwise—within shops along Chicago Avenue (between Milwaukee Ave and Western Ave. Check in and get a pin at Head Quarters: Dovetail).

During this Friday & Saturday event, attendees can enjoy visual art, music, and fashion from Chicago artists all showcased within West Town’s shops, businesses, restaurants, and bars. Admission is free.

Established in 2011, the West Town Art Walk is an annual event organized by West Town business owners to celebrate our diverse community of businesses while highlighting Chicago artists. Our mission is to showcase West Town as a rich cultural hub that has much to offer residents and business owners alike.

Art That Walks Parade: Saturday, October 3rd from 10 am to 1 pm, the West Town Art Walk and Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art will present Art That Walks, a brand new immersive art making and art sharing experience. Intended for families and individuals, Art That Walks aims to transform the neighborhood into a living, walking work of art. Art walkers of all ages are invited to gather at Eckhart Park (1330 W. Chicago Ave.), where they can test their own artistic creativity by making colorful masks and costumes before parading down the West Town Art Walk strip together. Art That Walks will include a marching band and conclude with a special dance party celebration with live music.

Friday the 2nd, an exciting lineup of after parties will ring in this year’s West Town Art Walk. The special events will feature everything from -live music to manicures, listed below.

Live Art Making: Check out West Town artists in action this year as Chicago Truborn features two locations of live art making. Local artists will be working to put up a public mural at 1612 W. Chicago Ave. in addition to letting you get close and personal with some canvas work at the Chicago Truborn gallery.

New to the West Town Art Walk this year is a beer and food truck tie-in. Participating Art Walk businesses will be offering specialty beer tastings from Tenth & Blake and Forbidden Root, who will we be sampling fall suds over the two day event. In addition, some of Chicago’s leading food trucks will all stage their four wheeled-kitchens along the West Town Art Walk route between Paulina and Hermitage, offering mobile delicacies for art walkers from Da Lobster, Chicago Cupcake, and Pierogi Wagon.
