The 2021 Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff presented by 1st Source Bank Wealth Advisory Services kicked off Saturday with 150 artist displays in beautiful Lake Bluff Park. For many of the artists, this was the first art fair they have attended in nearly 22 months, and many traveled hundreds of miles to exhibit in St. Joseph.  Krasl organizers remind you that you can experience the talent and excitement of the Art Fair on the Bluff again today, Sunday, from 10 AM – 5 PM. Tickets are available at krasl.org or at the gates for $5.Artists are juried twice for the Krasl Art Fair; The first time is to get into the fair, the second for award winners in each artwork category.
