Harlem in New York City and Bronzeville in Chicago are two of the most celebrated African-American communities in the world,” says Dion Clarke, founder of the Harlem Fine Art Show. “We are excited to be returning to Chicago’s Merchandise Mart this fall and we are equally excited by the many events planned over the four days.”

According to the book Black Chicago Renaissance edited by Darlene Clark Hine and John McCluskey, …“The cultural outpouring that distinguished Harlem in the 20s swept through Chicago in the 30s bringing with it a prolific period of African American creativity in music, performance art, social science scholarship and visual an d literary artistic expression”.

The Harlem Fine Arts Show will host an Opening Night Gala Reception on October 29 benefitting the North Shore (IL) Chapter, The Links Incorporated. The event will also recognize leaders in the Chicago Arts Community.

The 2015 Harlem Fine Art Show is sponsored by United Airlines, Country Financial and Morgan Stanley. Discounted tickets are available at Walgreen’s locations across the Chicagoland region and first time customers to the ride sharing app Lyft can receive a $20 credit by using the code HFAS2015.
