Art in the Barn started in 1975. The first show had 30 artists & craftsmen and now has grown to 185. The attendance has grown to 7500 people in 2007 from Barrington, surrounding communities some including, Deer Park, Lake Zurich, Long Grove and surrounding states. It all started with ten women, craftsmen and artists that wanted to raise money for Good Sheperd Hospital and bring a high quality art event to our area. They have raised more than $2 million to date.
The shows offerings will include, sculptures, watercolors, photography, jewelry & mixed media.
The event is held on the hospitals campus in the original farm building on Route 22 in Barrington. There is more than just the art to enjoy, there is live music, food, a pumpkin patch with bales of hay and corn stalks, childrens art tent, pony rides and more. If the weather is like this weekend it will be great to be outdoors.
The Art in the Barn event will be held Saturday, September 27th and Sunday, September 28, 2008
