Artist of the Corridor
Current Artist of the Corridor exhibition: Photographs at Urbana's Market at the Square
April 25 - July 31, 2013. The City of Urbana invites the public to an exhibition celebrating one of the City's most beloved traditions: Urbana's Market at the Square! One of the largest and most diverse farmers’ markets in Illinois, Urbana's Market at the Square is a gateway into historic downtown Urbana. Offering fresh, local produce from over 150 vendors in 2012, the Market has enjoyed steady patronage since its inception in 1979. Patrons can choose from a wide variety of made-in-Illinois goods at the Market, including fresh produce, meat and dairy products, prepared foods, plants, and flowers to jewelry, pottery, wood workings, candles, bodycare products, garden décor, clothing, and more!
Stop in the City Building lobby at 400 S Vine Street to see these photographs as you attend Urbana's Market at the Square this summer, 7:00 AM to noon on the corner of Vine and Illinois in historic downtown Urbana.
