The River North Design District proudly announces this year’s annual River North Fall Gallery Walk on September 10. The walk is comprised of 20 locations with special events throughout River North, featuring 25 artists and 18 designer vignettes. The Gallery Walk’s philanthropic partner is Digs with Dignity, which will receive a portion of proceeds.
The walk is free and open to the public except for opening night parties. Showrooms will have extended hours on September 10 and will offer libations courtesy of Tito’s Handmade Vodka and special beer pairings courtesy of Anheuser Busch. The vignettes will be on display until October 11.
The Gallery Walk kicks off with a VIP reception at Calia Stone Boutique, where Yamini Designs and Interiors by Francesca have created a designer vignette and art by Linc Thelen will be featured. Additionally, the designers have curated works from philanthropic partner CAPE (Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education). Grab a goody bag courtesy of Benjamin Moore.
At the After Party, attendees will be guided through a series of sensory experiences, including a “sound bath,” as well as a tasting with Vosges chocolates. The After Party is hosted by 210 Design House and PROjECT. interiors, with artist Patrick Sansone and philanthropic partner Digs with Dignity.
VIP Kickoff Party and After Party tickets are $35 each or $60 for both and go on sale July 1. Proceeds benefit the not-for-profit River North Design District and fund yearly programming. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit Digs for Dignity, which aims to elevate the lives of Chicagoans through home furnishings.
