Established in 2011, the West Town Art Walk is organized by the West Town Chamber of Commerce and a committee of West Town business owners to celebrate the diverse community of businesses in West Town while highlighting Chicago artists. The mission is to showcase West Town as a rich cultural hub that has much to offer residents, visitors, and business owners alike.
West Town’s diverse businesses participate in the Art Walk and showcase all that the West Town neighborhood has to offer.
2020 West Town Art Walk Participants, Events & Local Specials will be visible and available right here after September 14, 2020! Please check back soon!

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.
