Hosted by the hospital Auxiliary, proceeds from Art in the Barn benefit hospital construction projects and initiatives to enhance patient comfort and care in addition to providing scholarships for college students pursuing degrees in the field of health care.

Art in the Barn began in 1974 when a group of 10 women and local artists met to develop a quality art event for the Barrington area. What began as an art show with 30 artists and 1,500 attendees has grown to a unique and one of the finest art festivals in the Chicago area with 185 artists exhibiting their work

Last year, over 6,500 people from the surrounding area attended Art in the Barn where they enjoyed not only the exhibition and sale of fine art, but also music and entertainment, food from a variety of vendors, children's art and pony rides.

Art in the Barn is one of the major fundraisers sponsored by the Auxiliary of Good Shepherd Hospital which has donated more than $7.3 million dollars to the hospital.
