About the Artists of the Wall Festival
Every summer over Father’s Day weekend in Loyola Park, neighbors of all ages and backgrounds come together to collaborate on a 600-foot mural along the lakefront between Farwell and Morse Avenues. The artists finished works remain until May of the following the year when the wall is again prepped, whitewashed and readied for the next round of eager participants.
The Artists of the Wall Festival initially began as a response to gangs who would continually graffiti the 600-foot sea wall to the point where the park district couldn’t keep up maintenance. Since its inception in 1993, this beloved fest has become a true celebration of community, creativity, and music for everyone enjoy.
