The Rockford Area Arts Council will present the 32nd Annual Fall ArtScene on October 4 and October 5, 2019!

Fall ArtScene will showcase original works of art at 36 locations across the Rockford area from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, October 4, and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 5, 2019, with some locations offering extended hours until 10 p.m. During Fall ArtScene weekend, existing galleries and pop-up galleries alike will display and sell the work of dozens of local artists.  Admission to every venue is free and open to the public, and the concentration in time and space of artists showing work presents a great opportunity to purchase artwork!

Enjoy new exhibits and original works of art in varied media of watercolor, acrylic, wood, sculpture, pottery, furniture, jewelry, photography and multi-media.  ArtScene has something for everyone, with nearly 10,000 people attending Artscene each year.

The Rockford Mass Transit District will sponsor free trolley rides on a downtown loop to make it easier for attendees to get around.  Trolley stops will be indicated through signage.  Visit for a list of participating locations!
