The American Craft Exposition, one of the country’s most anticipated fine craft shows, has moved to a new location at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
Passionate about the arts? This one’s for you.
In its 32nd year, this highly competitive juried show and sale of fine craft features one-of-a-kind handcrafted artwork and luxury collections from the country's leading craftspeople.
Tête-à-tête with the artists
Meet some of the country’s top artists—along with selected emerging artists—in 12 media, including jewelry, ceramics, metal, glass, leather, and baskets.
Be among the first
Peruse and purchase unique works of art before the exposition opens to the public. Enjoy an elegant evening with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and an exclusive sneak peek at the Benefit Preview Party on Thursday, September 22.
Support the cause
Proceeds support pharmacogenomics research at NorthShore University HealthSystem. The show is presented by the Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem.
You can’t beat the setting
Take a break from the show and check out the early fall colors on 385 acres at the Garden: gold katsura trees, garnet chrysanthemums, burgundy smoke tree, purple-copper eastern ninebark, and more.
The Greenhouses are closed during the ACE show.
For safety reasons, strollers are not permitted in the show.
