Northwestern University ArtsFest

Calling All Artists!!!

Northwestern University’s Community Development Corps is looking for Chicago-area artists who want to display their artwork in its annual celebration of art: ArtsFest.  Last year, over 50 artists and 800 guests attended, and we would love to do even better this year!  The event takes place Sunday, April 29th from 1-4 and it’s a great opportunity to display your art to the public.  While artists are not permitted to sell their work at ArtsFest, they are encouraged to bring business cards for networking and meeting potential future clients.  If you have any interest in participating, you can contact me at laurendepaula2014@u.northwestern.edu or call me at (303) 916-3265.

Thanks, and I hope to see many of you on the 29th!
