NOTE: Art Depth is celebrating its Five Year Anniversary & hosting its Yearly Interactive Art Party at this event. You’ll notice the date has been set earlier than usual and this is only so we all can truly appreciate and experience Chicago’s summer on a farm!

This is the year that we all are expected to do our part in helping to make our world a better place. That includes living more sustainably and taking responsibility for our actions. No matter how much or little you can do, it really does make a difference. After this five-hour experience you will leave with more inspiration, creativity and passion than you’ve felt in years, not to mention the invaluable new connections you will make. To get some inspiring tips visit!sustainable-you/ct9d

One Important rule to all attendees:
Be respectful of others as well as having much respect for the vegetation. A farm this lush doesn’t just grow overnight.
