Preview party kicks off 53rd Annual Greenwich Village Art Fair


A dessert and champagne party will kick off the festivities for the 53rd Annual Greenwich Village Art Fair. The gala party will be held from 7 to 11 p.m., Friday, Sept. 14 at the Riverfront Museum Park. The art fair runs Saturday, Sept. 15 and Sunday, Sept. 16 on the grounds of the Riverfront Museum Park.

Not only a kickoff for the Greenwich Village Art Fair, the party will also open the 2001-02 Rockford “Social Season” and showcase the beginning of collaborative efforts, centered around the 100th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz on behalf of the Cultural Corridor Committee, Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, Riverfront Museum Park, Rockford Art Museum, Discovery Center Museum, Rockford Dance Company, Rockford Symphony, Burpee Natural History Museum and New American Theater.

The Greenwich Village Art Fair preview party boasts the theme, “There’s No Place Like Home.” And to prove it, 15 of the area’s finest artists will exhibit their work at the party as a prelude to the wonderful art that will be on display during the weekend of the art fair. The party, an expected sell-out with a maximum of 350 guests, is by invitation only. Reservations are $35 per person. Entertainment will be provided by The Dan Voll Jazz Trio, Dance Reach and The Rockford Dance Company. Premier sponsor of this event is Alpine Bank. Additional sponsorship is provided by Meltmar, Inc.
