Cummings: La Grange gets artsy
La Grange has earned a reputation for many things, David Hasselhoff notwithstanding. Along with a high-energy downtown area, hip restaurants and a classic theater, our village is increasingly recognized for its lively arts community.
Yes, we have art galleries and art leagues, art classes, exhibits and studios. But, we also have a growing number of retailers representing well-known regional artisans. Our merchants deal in vintage art, modern art and cartoon art. You can spend an afternoon and paint your own canvas, prepare your ceramics for the kiln and design your own beadwork, too.
There’s a buzz that La Grange is an art destination, due in part to two events organized by the La Grange Business Association. Our annual Sidewalk Art Exhibit – this year displaying colorful bag toss board games – brings visitors from surrounding communities to discover the whimsical themes created by clever local artists. These much-admired games will be auctioned for charities Sept. 6 from outside Village Hall.
