The 2019 Lakeview East Festival of the Arts showcases more than 150 juried artists featuring world-class original paintings, sculpture, photography, furniture, jewelry and more. In addition to the diverse artists’ booths, the Festival also includes live music on multiple stages, an interactive children’s area, wine, beer and food booths, an interactive garden oasis and much more.  Each year one artist is chosen to create an image to represent the year’s festival on various materials around the city. The year the artist is painter Karina Llergo’s “Dare to Live.”  The original work is a limited edition 60” x 30” canvas embellished with thick acrylics applied by palette knife to add a 3-D feel. Llergo, born and raised in Mexico City currently resides in Northbrook, Illinois.
