Clear, sunny skies and unseasonably warm weather may have us all hoping for an eternal summer, but there’s one sure sign that autumn has arrived: the Winnetka Park District’s annual Fall Fest, held each year in September on the expansive lawn of Duke Childs Field.

On Aug. 23, local youth volunteers from the Henry’s HEROES Foundation to end epilepsy gathered in the light-filled art studio of the North Shore Art League in Winnetka to create original art pieces for their upcoming fundraiser, Art in the Park.
