This is a short video showing the collaboration between three art leagues, Deerpath Art League, Artists on the Bluff and the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Artisans Guild. These three groups came together to create a wonderful “Celebration of the Seasons” in Market Square Lake Forest.

The windows of some of the vacant stores were used to exhibit art and the Art Pop Up Shop is an actual empty store filled with work from artists in all three groups. These exhibits will be up till the end of the year.
