Two decades of art — that's something to celebrate.
The Harrison Arts District will do exactly that this weekend at its 20th anniversary party for Art on Harrison, the annual event that brings people together to tour galleries and see what the arts district has to offer.
Conceived of as an informal Friday evening gallery walk, the event has evolved each September since its inception, expanding to include entertainment and performances at participating galleries.
The festival will be held on Friday, Sept. 20, from 6 to 10 p.m., and Saturday, from noon to 8 p.m. The Oak Park Arts District is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the formation of the business district on Harrison Street in 1993. Several businesses are also celebrating milestones: Founded in Oak Park, Scheck & Siress celebrates 60 years in business, Bead in Hand turns 20 in November, Buzz Cafe is 15 and Eastgate Cafe turns five.
