Window shopping will be a bit more artsy and eco-friendly at some Oak Park businesses this April.
Downtown Oak Park is partnering with local schools for the first time to showcase 11 pieces of art created by students using recyclable materials. They'll be on display from April 1 to April 20.
Community members will be able to vote for their favorite inside participating businesses, and the winner will be announced at the Village of Oak Park’s Earth Fest on Saturday, April 20.
"Aside from recognition for being green, the winning students will also win a zero-waste pizza party," according to a Downtown Oak Park news release.
Downtown Oak Park has initiated other green efforts, including sustainable event practices and applying for certification as a green business through Illinois Green Business Association.
