The Arts of Life: 2017 Summer Blow Out Sale and Block Party
The Party of the Summer and Sale of the Season
Chicago, IL — The Arts of Life, a Chicagoland non-profit arts studio for adults with and without disabilities, will be having their annual Blow Out Sale on Friday, August 4th, 2017 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm at 2010 W Carroll Ave.
One-of-a-kind artwork created by The Arts of Life artists will be on sale for as low as $10 (up to 90% off)! Additional merchandise such as screen prints, t-shirts, tote bags, handmade stationery, and other collectables will also be available at discounted prices.
Kickoff your weekend with The Arts of Life! Dance to live music by Courtesy and enjoy delicious summer foods and brews provided Finch’s Beer Company and Miko’s Italian Ice. All proceeds go directly to The Arts of Life, which is celebrating seventeen years of empowering people to create an amazing artistic and personal vision for their community. This event is free and open to the public.
This unique collection of artwork is created by artists with disabilities and cannot be found anywhere else! The Blow Out Sale only comes once a year and is a wonderful opportunity to support a local cause.
For those unable to attend the main event on August 4th, any Blow Out Sale items not sold will be available for purchase at the Chicago Studio during normal business hours (9:00am to 4:00pm, Monday to Friday). But once everything is gone, it’s GONE!
Opened in 2000, The Arts of Life was the first program in Chicago to provide employment in the arts for adults with developmental disabilities. The studio serves as both an alternative day program and creative epicenter for its artists. Funded partly by the Department of Human Services, The Arts of Life also greatly depends on fundraising efforts and grants to sustain its program.
