Mission Statement

The mission of the 57th Street Art Fair is to conduct an outdoor fair for the promotion of the original work of painters, sculptors, craftsmen and photographers. We aim to bring together the artist and the public in informal surroundings to their mutual benefit. We continually strive for quality in the arts.


The 57th Street Art Fair is a free two-day outdoor celebration of the visual arts held in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, adjacent to the University of Chicago campus and the home of President Barack Obama. Once again as artists and art lovers reunite at Chicago's oldest juried art fair in the Midwest, our fair typically features the work of 200-250 exhibitors. Most are returning artists, but each year between 50 and 75 new exhibitors are invited to participate by a jury made up of collectors, critics, curators and artists.

The goal of the 57th Street Art Fair is to provide a venue for creators of quality fine art and fine craft to meet with the art-buying public. Whether you are looking for glass, jewelry, leather, photography, printmaking, painting, sculpture, wood, ceramics or fiber -- you are sure to find something special at this one of a kind event.

The 57th Street Art Fair is an Illinois Not For Profit Corporation and all proceeds are used to produce the annual Fair. The 57th Street Art Fair is organized and operated by volunteers.

Kick off your summer with a flair at the first art fair of the season, the 67th Annual 57th Street art fair.
