Artists fill downtown La Grange with painted bean bag boards
LA GRANGE – Rectangular boards typically reserved for the thump of flying bean bags have been transformed into public art lining the sidewalks of downtown La Grange this summer.
Boards used in the game cornhole, also called bags, are the platform for this year’s “Fun & Games in La Grange” summer art exhibit sponsored by the La Grange Business Association (LGBA). The exhibition, in its eighth year, pairs local businesses with local artists, who create a painting based on a subject related to the business. The exhibition aims to highlight local businesses and attract visitors to La Grange. Past years have featured elephants, artist’s easels, Adirondack chairs, rain barrels, rocking chairs and contemporary grandfather clocks.
“Artistically, it might be the best year ever,” said Charlene Vickery, chairperson for the project, at a kickoff event May 28 at Bottle & Bottega.
