Chicago is celebrating the best in Illinois performance entertainment this summer at Millennium Park. ECHO Chain Saw Carving team members, including Mike Bihlmaier from Marengo, IL and multiple champion Bob King from Edgewood, WA, will be on hand to demonstrate their Full Throttle Art for the public at this year’s Great Performers of Illinois 2010 festival, July 9-11.
The carvers will create several works including smaller pieces every day while also working on a larger ‘Masterpiece’ to fit within the festival theme of “Spirit of Illinois.”
Other events and attractions at the Great Performers of Illinois event include a marketplace of Illinois artisanal crafts and local foods and products. There is also free wine tasting from Illinois vintners at the Park Grill on the Plaza.
