Following requests from artists requesting a deadline extension for submitting their artwork for the annual juried Art Banner Exhibit, the West Chicago Cultural Arts Commission has agreed to extend the deadline to Friday, February 21, 2020.
An online submission application may be found at https://form.jotform.com/92166762392161.
All media are welcome, with no limitation to technique or subject matter, as long as it relates to the theme. Each selected design will be reproduced, at the Commission’s expense, on (h) 60 x (w) 30″vinyl street banners. Artists selected will receive credit on both the banner and in printed materials related to the exhibit. Additionally, they may submit a brief statement about their inspiration for inclusion in publicity materials.
Banners will hang on Main Street and West Washington Street in downtown West Chicago from May – September 2020.
A reception honoring the chosen artists will take place during the City’s annual Blooming Fest in May 2020. The original artwork selected for the Banner Exhibit may also be featured in a City Museum exhibit which will run May – August, 2020, giving the artwork greater exposure.
