The Oak Park Area Arts Council (OPAAC) is at it again. Bringing art to the people of Oak Park and beyond.
Returning for its’ sixth season is the Oak Park Sculpture Walk and what better place to locate this years’ works of art but on Harrison Street, the heart of Oak Park’s Arts District. The sculptures are presently being installed between Austin Boulevard and Ridgeland Avenue – so nine blocks of artistic vibe to help support and showcase this years twelve new sculptures.
All the installations are scheduled to be completed by May 12th, right in time for the annual “What’s Blooming on Harrison” street festival, happening on May 20th. The festival features an art fair, loads of family fun, including a kids carnival, musicians, dancers, art demonstrations, not to mention food, drinks and now 12 amazing sculptural works of art to appreciate, analyze, discuss and enjoy!
This year technology also comes into play with the sculptures. You can download your mobile audio guide app through Otocast (app available after the opening on May 19th) and get artistic insights right on your phone.
