Loyola Park Advisory Committee: 25th Annual Artists of the Wall Festival
June 16 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
If you’ve ever wondered how the benches along the lake in Loyola Park Beach became so colorful, here is your answer: the Artists of the Wall Festival. Each year over Father’s Day weekend, artists and ordinary neighbors of all ages come together to collaborate on a 600-foot mural at Loyola Park Beach between Farwell and Morse Avenues. Coordinated by members of the Loyola Park Advisory Council, the festival is an annual celebration of our lakefront and all that we love about Rogers Park.
This year’s theme is Legends of the Wall. The festival raises money for important community events such as father-daughter dances, African-American heritage celebrations, youth sports programs, and more. Please come to the festival and support of local park and local artists.
First, second, third places for Adults, and first, second place each for Teen/Junior will be awarded. Prizes will be gift certificates donated by our local businesses. If two spaces are painted as one mural, neither will be eligible. Prizes will be drawn on Sunday at 4:30 at the music stage. Winners will be notified by phone or email if not present.
