Name: 2020 "La Grange Rolls With It" Outdoor Art Exhibit
Date: June 1, 2020 - September 7, 2020
Event Description:
Local businesses are sponsoring a unique outdoor art exhibit of wheeled party carts called “La Grange Rolls with It” this summer, and adding a new twist... a scavenger hunt! Nearly 30 whimsical rolling carts have been painted by local artists and are displayed on sidewalks of the business district to encourage support of La Grange businesses and draw attention to its lively arts community.

“La Grange Rolls with It” is sponsored by the Park District of La Grange, Douglas Auto Body and the Village of La Grange along with dozens of business owners. Designs range from sophisticated to outlandish and contemporary to traditional. The wheeled carts will be displayed outdoors through Labor Day and auctioned in September to benefit local nonprofit groups.

View all of the stunning party carts here and submit your bid: 

Hand built by Wade’s World of Batavia, each cart features two shelves, two wheels at the bottom and a push handle. The carts are secured to light poles throughout the business district for display through the summer.

This is the 14th year that the business association has organized a summer public art exhibit, which each year features a different item like rocking chairs, giant clocks, little libraries, peace pole birdhouses, beverage coolers and loveseats.

Scavenger Hunt Encourages Admirers to Explore La Grange Businesses Block by Block

Admirers of the art exhibit are invited to explore it block-by-block and “hunt” for items that have been painted on some of the carts. Details of the exhibit that lists the location of the artwork, the items to find and instructions on how to submit answers can be found here or through the La Grange mobile app, available for free in the Google and Apple Stores, beginning Monday.

Three winners will be randomly selected from all correct submissions to receive $100 in La Grange Gift Certificates.
