A who’s who in the Chicago design and art communities gathered for our 5th Annual River North Design District Fall Gallery Walk Friday, September 6th to view vignettes designed by Chicago’s top designers as they showcased living settings highlighting artwork created by some of the brightest stars in the art world today. It was our biggest and best turnout yet with almost 900 attendees! Thanks to everyone who came out to support us. And don’t forget the vignettes are on display until October 7th!
For the first time ever, our host committee – comprised of local art enthusiasts and collectors – selected winners from the Gallery Walk for Best Vignette. We are excited to announce the winners below! A special thank you to our sponsor Freeze & Float Spa who provided our First Place Winner with a $500 gift card to their River North Spa!
