Printer’s Row Art Fest

Chicagoans are lucky to live in a city rich in events happening all the time, including the return of the Printer’s Row Art Fest for its second year.

Attendees can browse and shop an array of artistic gems from a variety of different vendors while appreciating the originality, charm, and culture of the area.


The Printer’s Row Art Fest will feature exquisite work by artisans of all kinds through mediums including paintings, jewelry, photography, up-cycle, mixed media, up-cycle art, and more.

A noteworthy artist showcasing his collection at the festival will be Mark Hersch. As a rephotographer, Hersch merges historic photographs with contemporary photographs that he shoots from the same vantage point in the present day. Taking rephotography a bit further, he then brings the photographs together to form a single image, revealing parts of the old world and parts of the new.

Another featured collection attendees can look forward to seeing at the event will be Derek Christensen Reclaimed Creations. The majority of Christensen’s art is created mostly by license plates that he cuts and shapes into various pieces. Patrons will be able to see several items of his work that include flags, signs, photos of political figures, and more.

Festival attendees can also look forward to jewelry by Helen Chan, hand-made ceramic pottery for the home and kitchen by Benjamin Buchenot, and many others.


Performing at the festival will be the Chicago-based musical group Cirrus Falcon. Playing a variety of material, patrons can expect to hear everything from classic rock and country tunes to 80’s jams, and more.

The Printer’s Row Art Fest is a free event that will take place September 14-15 from 10AM-5PM.

The event will be held at 701 South Dearborn from Polk to Harrison Street.
