This year at the festivals Amdur Productions has started a new charity initiative called the Green Ribbon Project. The project connects the festival with an important cause and aims to stimulate art buying at the festival. Participating artists put a green ribbon on a piece of their choice in their booth and when the piece is sold the artist agrees to give 10% of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society, which is the dedicated charity for the Chicago Botanic Garden Art Festival.

For more than thirty years, Amdur Productions has crafted and curated a selection of the country’s most prestigious juried art festivals, including the Chicago Botanic Garden Art Festival, Gold Coast Art Fair, and Port Clinton Art Festival. Founded by Amy Amdur in 1983, Amdur Productions attracts thousands of guests to explore and enjoy a showcase of artists’ work in a free and fun environment. Several of Amdur Productions’ festivals have been selected as Sunshine Artist magazine’s top 100 best fine art and design shows.
