CHICAGO ( September 18, 2017 ) — In its 15th year, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce ( ACC ) will expand Andersonville Arts Week to a week-long celebration October 10 — 15, with over 70 local shops, restaurants, and businesses set to host more than 150 artists. This year's event will focus on nine specific genres of art: visual, theatre, dance, music, culinary, handmade, kids/family, literary, and public art, with a range of festivities and activities in the works to represent each.

"The expansion of Arts Week is exciting on many levels and speaks to the one-of-a-kind experience Andersonville offers," commented ACC Executive Director Sara Dinges. "Art - whether performance, design, handmade or culinary - is inherently part of the Andersonville fabric, and we cannot wait to illuminate this experience."

The full schedule for Arts Week will be released in the coming weeks at andersonville.org/aaw. Highlights will include:

- All week: Returning district-wide self-guided art walk to view artists' work at participating businesses

- Tuesday, October 10: Theatre crawl

- Wednesday, October 11: Andersonville Farmers Market expansion with special performances

- Thursday, October 12: Culinary features and live music

- Friday, October 13: Stroll & Soriée art walk and parties throughout Andersonville

- Saturday, October 14: Kick-off of outdoor Makers Market in the Swedish American Museum parking lot and Berwyn block party

- Sunday, October 15: Andersonville public art mural reveal

In addition, visitors can expect literary readings, free performances, DIY public art, kids and family actives, artist receptions, and much more throughout the entire week.
