Experience Guide 2021 - 25

Markets & Events
To get a broad picture of the many artists that live and create
here, attend the Boneyard Arts Festival every April. In over
a hundred venues across the county, you'll discover art of all
mediums from our local artists. This event is an opportune
time to take home the art that inspires you, and connect with
new artists.
Local art fairs can be found throughout the year so you can
discover pieces that call to you. New on the scene, the Crystal
Lake Park Art Fair at Urbana's scenic park curates over 20
artists with an array of mediums for you to admire. The Made
Fest, a part of Pygmalion, features local and regional artists,
showcasing hand-made and vintage pieces in this two-day
show on campus.
As the holidays loom, numerous art shows are available so you
can give the gift of art to a loved one, but we won't tell if you
keep it for yourself. Here's a few to check out:
Craft League of Champaign-Urbana Annual Art Fair
Mistletoe Market
Allerton Holiday Showcase
Boneyard Arts Festival
Public Art
Walk around our city streets or head into area parks and you're
sure to see pieces of art adorning the area. Whether it's sculpture
adding to the landscape or murals that tell a story, we have plenty
of art to show off in our public spaces.
Meadowbrook Park
Art in the Parks
In collaboration with the Public Art League, Champaign parks are filled with sculptures,
adding to the beauty of the natural areas. In Urbana's Meadowbrook Park, the Wandell
Sculpture Garden adds 22 pieces of sculpture on the meandering paths that lead
through the restored prairie. At Allerton Park & Retreat Center, artwork laid the
foundation of the estate landscape, with art to be discovered in the formal gardens and
throughout the wooded areas along the Sangamon River.
Urban Art
Like our parks, our streets in our urban spaces are populated with sculpture from
whimsical pieces such as Chester the Jester in downtown Champaign to Byways to
Equality in King Park in Urbana, a commentary on the people and events during the civil
rights movement.
Murals appear on the side of numerous buildings in urban spaces. The mural in the
Seven Saints beer garden commemorates a local personality, Chef Ra; while in another
downtown beer garden, the Outside of Ordinary mural pays homage to the community's
celebrated spaces.
Graffiti art covers the surfaces in downtown Urbana's Sipyard,
from the shipping crates where you can pick up a local beer
to the walls in the alleyway. The evolving art that continues
to show up in the space speaks to the local community and
national issues experienced through art.
