Join the Elgin Cultural Arts Commission for the third annual Art Harvest to be held in downtown Elgin on Saturday, October 27, from 1-4 p.m. This event has several family-friendly components like a community yarn-bomb spider web, inside-out haunted house, paint-your-own-pumpkin, arts and crafts, and more, all of which can be found at “Art Central” a.k.a. DuPage Court.
You can swing by there, grab your Art Treasure Hunt map and head out to find the public art in downtown Elgin. At each piece of public art, participants will meet a local artist. Talk with them, collect your stickers, and head back to Art Central to redeem your completed map for prizes.
New to the Art Treasure Hunt this year will be the two new pieces of public art. Two new pieces of art: “Stronger Together!” A new mural by artist Pam Seatter located in the Centre’s Parking deck on the first floor, and “Through” by artist Ben Pierce, located on the north end of Foundry Park.
Be sure to wear a costume while you are out and about on your hunt, as several of the downtown businesses will be open for trick-or-treating. All of the events of the day are free, family-friendly, and open to the public.
