ART POP store, 724 Western, Lake Forest, IL

Shop high quality art by talented artists.

Farewell 264 Market Square, Lake Forest, IL. We’ve enjoyed out stay and thank Market Square Management Company for making it possible.
The Lake Forest community accepted us with open arms in December of 2020 and we’ve continued to welcome them through the doors of Art Pop. We made new friends and furry friends and welcomed many loyal patrons of the arts over the past six months.
The numerous sales and repeat customers were a signal to carry on each month, but now it is time for Art Pop to venture forward to a new location.
Hello 724 Western, Lake Forest, IL. Yes, we’re just around the corner from 264 Market Square. Safely snuggled between Gerhard’s Elegant European Desserts and Einstein Bros. Bagels. Once again, thank you to Market Square Management Company for making it possible.

Opening is planned for June 10, 2021. You are bound to find the special hand made gifts you were looking for.

The work in this store are produced by artists from three different art leagues, Artists on the Bluff, Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Artisans and the Deerpath Art League. Please take a stroll around the square and check out the windows in other storefronts.
