Grant Park is known for music festivals, but this weekend, it's the setting for of Chicago's oldest and largest art fairs.

About 500 juried artists are taking part in the 53rd annual Gold Coast Art Fair.

Among them were 24 students from the School of the Art Institute.

Their work includes painting, jewelry, sculpture and more.
