PAINT - THE - PORT
PAINT-THE-PORT is a family fun event where downtown streets are transformed into hundreds of squares measuring 4×4 that serve as a canvas for amateur artists of all ages.
Kids and adults are invited to get creative and paint the street using washable, tempera paints provided. Together, we will create a colorful vibrant masterpiece spanning Chicago Ave. from the future site of the Freeport Art Museum Arts Plaza to the Lindo Theater. Gather your friends and family together and get your PAINT On!
The money raised from our sponsors helps create a matching grant to assist downtown business owners improve the look of their buildings. Our vision is to facilitate a completely renovated downtown Freeport; one building at a time.
