ARTWAUK SHOWCASE

image52

 The concept of the ArtWauk  (pronounced "art walk" and short for Waukegan) was developed by Waukegan artists to fill vacant properties with art and improve the perception of our downtown neighborhood.   On February 23rd (Waukegan's birthday) in 2002, the first ArtWauk took place, becoming monthly in 2011, ever third Saturday.


Join Independence Center & Dandelion Gallery for this year's ArtWauk to see the Exhibition "The Art of Mental Wellness" and maybe bring some artwork home:


25% of proceeds from any art purchase will benefit Independence Center!

PLUS: Stop by the Independence Center table to enter for your chance to win great prizes, including a 4-pack of tickets to the Oct. 25 event!

AD BOOK OPPORTUNITIES

image53

Independence Center looks to support our businesses as much as they support us, so it is important to us that we have an option for advertisement and partnership at all contribution levels. This helps us allow small businesses and community providers with little to no marketing budget to get involved and show the community they too support our cause.


For as little as $25, you can promote your business in our event program on Oct. 25. Prices range up to $300 and are based on size and placement of your ad.


Placement, unless specifically purchased, is based on a first come, first serve basis, so get your space now for the greatest level of exposure.


CONTACT US to learn more, or view details on ad space available.
