For more than thirty years, Amdur Productions, a nationally acclaimed arts festival production company, has organized and directed many of the Midwest’s most prestigious juried art festivals. This year, Amdur Productions offers artists four new art festivals in the Midwest: The 2017 Chicago Art Show at the iconic Navy Pier in downtown Chicago; Hand•Made Chicago, an outside show in the trendy West Loop neighborhood of Chicago; Deer Park Art Show, a highly-anticipated event at the upscale Deer Park Town Center; and the return of a great Starving Artists Show back on the streets of Highwood.
Many of Amdur’s festivals are rated in Sunshine Artist Magazine’s top 100, with several appearing in the top 50. The Port Clinton Art Festival, celebrating its 33rd year, was ranked the seventh best show in the country by Sunshine Artist Magazine in 2015. Six other Amdur Productions art festivals ranked within the top 100 in 2015 include: Chicago Botanic Garden Art Festival, Art at the Glen Town Center, Gold Coast Art Fair, Buffalo Grove Art Festival, Millennium Art Festival, and the Promenade of Art.
