The Alliance is excited for the return of the Beverly Art Walk on Saturday, September 18th! This large, multi-faceted neighborhood-wide festival of the arts includes more than 125 artists at nearly 50 venues spanning 95th to 111th Streets, Walden to Western Avenue. A comprehensive map will be published online before the event and also printed in the September 15th edition of the Beverly Review.
The 2021 Beverly Art Walk honors local artist Judie Anderson, friend and muse of the Beverly Area Arts Alliance. Judie is a constant advocate and ambassador for the arts in Beverly/Morgan Park. She has been a working artist for more than 60 years, including 20 at the Chicago Tribune at a time when few women worked in news rooms, and an inspiration to the founders of the Beverly Art Walk.
Judie attended the first community meetings in the summer of 2014 and has cheered on and participated in the Alliance’s work ever since, including opening her home studio to the public during each Art Walk. Judie inspires us through her distinguished career in the arts and her ongoing work to support a thriving arts community in Beverly/Morgan Park.
Judie’s home studio at 106th & Hoyne will be a feature of the 8th annual Beverly Art Walk on Saturday September 18th, noon-5pm. The Art Walk map will be featured in the September 15th edition of the Beverly Review and at venues across Beverly/Morgan Park.
The goal of the Beverly Art Walk is to celebrate the arts in our community and to showcase the venues and businesses that support the arts. This year, we have an additional commitment to make the event completely free of charge, including waiving artist and venue participation fees to better support our community. Please join us in supporting our local businesses and organizations that participate in the Beverly Art Walk.
