Bicentennial Birthday Bash

Century Walk is hosting its first fundraiser in 23 years - a "Bicentennial Birthday Bash" on Sunday, December 2, 2018, at Wentz Concert Hall, North Central College from 3:00 - 5:00 pm. It is being held in conjunction with the State of Illinois' 200th birthday Monday, December 3rd. Admission to the fundraiser is $100 per person and includes presentations by Century Walk artists, a beverage bar, artisan hors d'oeuvres, a virtual Century Walk of our 50 locations of public art and more. All proceeds go to Century Walk, a 501(c)3 corporation.

As Naperville's Public Art Program, we are charged with artistically creating and maintaining murals, sculptures and reliefs portraying significant people, places and events in the City's history. Our goal is to raise funds for Naperville's public art including the unique "Laughing Lincoln" sculpture at Central Park to be dedicated at 2:00 pm, immediately preceding the Birthday Bash.
