 Come Sit, Stay & Play La Grange/ Art Exhibit

We salute the vibrant arts community in La Grange by organizing a unique sidewalk art display each summer; this year, we honor the 75th anniversary of the La Grange Pet Parade with a special exhibit geared to pets and the families who love them! This one-of-a-kind art walk of clever doghouses and relaxing lounge chairs is presented by the Park District of La Grange. Get the map.  Each piece is sponsored by a local business and designed and painted by a local artist for display on the sidewalks of the business district.  Bid on them at the auction from the West End Arts Festival on September 11!
