Westmont, Illinois – Date Issued: April 20, 2023
Over the last few years, Westmont Special Events and the Creative Arts Network have dramatically increased the number of opportunities for local artists to get involved in the community. Through art classes, art shows, photo contests, the business window painting program, and the recent Muddy Warhol Art Contest, more than 200 local artists have participated in these events over the past year.
“This program has been a great opportunity for local artists,” said Westmont Special Events President Steve Golembiewski. “This year, we’re even further expanding our art program by offering a total of 8 art shows during Cruisin’ Nights. We will also be offering two art classes during the Taste of Westmont weekend. We encourage all area artists to sign up at westmontevents.com and get involved.”
Online sign-up is required for all events. All of the Summer Art Shows will be located near NEAT Kitchen + Bar at 246 N. Cass Avenue. Following is this year’s Creative Arts Network Schedule of Events at Westmont Cruisin’ Nights.
