Art Fair 2019
November 1, 2019, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$40
Marwen announces Art Fair 2019, its 13th Annual exhibition and art auction. The event will be held on Friday, November 1, 2019, from 7-10 pm at Marwen, 833 N. Orleans Street in Chicago. Individual tickets to Art Fair are $40 in advance ($50 at the door) and include an open bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres. Tickets are on sale now at marwen.org/event/art-fair-2019. Group ticket sales are also available online.
Art Fair, which attracts nearly 400 guests each year, features three floors of artwork by Marwen students, teaching artists, alumni, and staff — all for sale through a silent auction. The exhibition includes photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, illustration, graphic design, fibers, and more. Guests will have the opportunity to use their phones to bid on artwork through a silent auction. Proceeds from each sale are divided equally, benefiting both the artist and Marwen’s free programs.
Since 1987, Marwen has educated and inspired young people from Chicago’s under-resourced communities and schools through the visual arts. Marwen provides free visual art courses, college planning, and career development programs to 6-12th graders from across the city. For more information visit marwen.org
