The 11th Mundelein Arts Festival is now accepting applications for exhibitors. This juried show will be held Sept. 10 and 11 at Kracklauer Park. The cost to apply is $25 and is nonrefundable.

Creators of original art and fine crafts, including paintings, photography, pottery, wood furnishings, jewelry, fiber, and other handmade items, are invited to apply.

 

The festival, presented by Mundelein Community Connection and Mundelein Park & Recreation District, is seeking approximately 45 fine artists and craftspeople for the juried show. Artists are eligible to win cash prizes in seven categories, including Best of Show.

In addition, The Kirk Players award a $500 cash prize to an emerging artist. Also, the village of Mundelein and several business sponsors purchase awards.

After taking a one-year hiatus in 2020 at the height of the pandemic, the Mundelein Arts Festival came back in full force with record attendance in 2021.

"We were thrilled with the turnout last fall after putting the festival on pause the year before," said Christa Lawrence, founder and event chair of the festival. "We are looking forward to even more people coming out to peruse, purchase art, eat and listen to music."
