From the Neighbors: Volunteer Request for Our Edgewater Fall Art Fair

Hi Folks,

We have a few Hood Avenue neighbors that are on the Board of Edgewater Artists in Motion. They are a consortium of artist who otherwise show their artwork in the vacant storefronts and CTA stations around Edgewater. This is the community organization that also sponsors our Edgewater Fall Art Festival every year. They would like to spread the word among the neighbors that they are in need of volunteers for our Art Fair on Granville this year.

The Art Fair will be on September 26th & 27th from 11:00am to 6:00pm

“Each volunteer will receive a personal certificate of appreciation, a festival T-shirts and a beverage from Metropolis and the beer garden. Encourage your friends to volunteer for a shift. Enjoy a fun day of great art displays, good entertainment, good food and beer garden gaiety.”

There will be a briefing party at 1232 W. Bryn Mawr at 6:00 PM on September 15 to discuss your duties and answer all questions. Food & beverages will be served.
