Student artwork from Carmel Catholic and Mundelein high schools will be on display.

The mission of the festival is to support the arts, provide scholarship money to deserving art students and bring attention to the town of Mundelein as an excellent place to live and visit.

The Mundelein Arts Festival is the brainchild of resident Christa Lawrence. A talented graphic artist, Lawrence was a supporter of the Mundelein Community Connection. The group was seeking ideas for ways to promote the village and she suggested an art show. She created the logo and website, sought out the artists, and the festival was born in September 2011.

After the first year, Lawrence realized she had neglected her own artistic dreams. She began creating hand-sculpted and painted ornaments with a whimsical nature under the banner of ChristaLynn Collectibles. Her specialty is custom pet caricatures. Now, she not only oversees the festival, but she's one of the artists as well.

Another local artist exhibiting is Gurnee resident Cindy Roehrich. Jewelry designing has been her passion for 22 years. Her designs are vintage inspired and she uses recycled buttons or old jewelry to create new items.
