What is Art Spectacular? It is a multi-experience festival of art and music. Founded by Rees Carillon Society Board Member, Barb Walker, Art Spectacular is a professionally juried fine art and craft show featuring collector- and museum-quality works of art and crafts. Over two days, Art Spectacular attracts approximately 5,500 to 6,500 attendees. Works of art and crafts range from $50 to $7,500. In addition to a silent auction and gift basket raffle, the event also features hourly carillon performances and other performances by local musicians.

High School art students throughout Sangamon and Menard Counties competed to be included in the ten juried finalists who will display their artwork at Art Spectacular and be judged for cash prizes. Congratulations to the ten 2019 Finalists:
