About the Show:
Dangerous Lullabies is a group fine art exhibition that explores the curious allure of things that frighten us. Artists from across the country have conspired to fill a historic mansion with paintings, sculptures and fine art creations which examine the beauty found in the ashes of terror and the magnetic pull of things that are disturbing, on-edge or dark. 

The exhibit will be at Crystal Lake’s Lakeside Arts Park in the Dole Mansion, an intricately detailed 1800’s building, which is rumored to be haunted. 

Opening night: 1st Friday, October 6, 5:00 - 8:00 pm
Exhibition runs Oct 6- Oct 27. Gallery hours 9-5 M-F.  
Lakeside Arts Park at the Dole 
401 Country Club Road, Crystal Lake, IL 60014

Tours available upon request. Contact us to make arrangements.

This show is curated by J + K Isacson in partnership with the Lakeside Legacy Arts Park. Find out details about the Dangerous Lullabies show, current calls for artists and other exhibitions
