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.
The West Town SSA Public Arts Initiative values cultural diversity and takes art out of designated space and places it in the public context to create full accessibility. Through highlighting local, emerging, and established artists; the goal is to culturally invigorate our vibrant community by enriching the neighborhood with pieces of public art, which will help to stimulate the local economy and establish West Town as a unique cultural destination.
The West Town Art Walk features a self guided tour map of the public art in West Town.
More TBA. Map Coming Soon.
Local businesses are encouraged to host artists in their space, feature a visual artist, performance artist, or musician.
