City of DuQuoin "Art on Main" Exploring Art in Southern Illinois

 I was very pleased to be a small part of this wonderful first time Art Walk in the historic downtown of DuQuoin Illinois. I want to give a special thank you to the DuQuoin Art Committee, the city of DuQuoin, and especially the Kabinet House for graciously allowing my art to be installed in their lovely show room and window.
The streets were closed and many art lovers and artists were strolling up and down Main street enjoying the art works of  local students and emerging artists from the region.  150 local Southern Illinois artists submitted work as well as 600 or more student works, that's a lot of eye candy!
Thirty-six businesses along Main Street generously allowed art to be displayed inside and in their windows for everyone to enjoy. It was a bit cold and breezy but many folks showed up to support the artists , it was a terrific first art walk kick-off!
A live performance by Cudgetown Road band in Ye Olde County Store and Ice Cream Shoppe added so much fun to the whole cultural experience:)
The art will be on display through April 28th at 12 noon so be sure to go see what the artist have available, many works are for sale.Contact info is posted with each piece.
I took as many photos as I could, the glare ruined a few but I think I have enough to peek your interest, there is so much great art to see you don't want to miss this opportunity.
