Old Town, also in Chicago, is fabulous! And/or the following weekend in Milwaukee...visit my art fair site: and look at all the choices. June is prime art fair time in the Midwest.

If you look at the image in the story, the "sculptural" piece is actually a piece of jewelry done by Debra Dembowski.
