Now in its 36th year, Lubeznik Center for the Arts' Lubeznik Art & Artisan Festival attracts thousands of shoppers and art enthusiasts to Michigan City's North End. Held on the third weekend in August, this festival features contemporary art, artist activations, beer and wine, and food. It draws repeat visitors from Chicago, South Bend and Northwest Indiana, as well as Michigan's nearby Harbor Country communities.
The festival, which was presented off-site for many years, is now held on the Lubeznik Center for the Arts' grounds to immerse festival-goers in the LCA experience and to help visitors connect with our mission more effectively. Proceeds from the festival are invested back into the Michigan City community through artistic and educational programs LCA provides annually.
Jurors will be artists Doug Stapleton and Frank Connet. Doug Stapleton is an Associate Curator of Art with the Illinois State Museum Chicago Gallery. He is also a visual artist and educator. Frank Connet is a studio artist, teacher and the owner of Textile Restoration Inc. in Chicago, IL. His work is in numerous private and public collection collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, the City of Chicago, Museum of Art and Design (New York), the deYoung Museum (San Francisco) and the MacArthur Foundation (Chicago).
