Mundelein Fine Arts Festival
Saturday and Sunday, September 7-8, 2013
Mundelein Community Connection announces the third annual Mundelein Fine Arts Festival, a juried art festival that will showcase the talents of 45 fine artists and craftspeople who work in a variety of media. The two-day event will be held from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday, September 7 and Sunday, September 8, 2013 and will feature top-notch artists, local musicians and tasty food.
In addition to professional artists, Mundelein Fine Arts Festival will also highlight artwork by select students from Mundelein and Carmel Catholic High Schools.
A committee of well-known judges will award a cash prize for: Best of Show; Judge's Choice 2-D; and Judge's Choice 3-D. In addition, both high schools will receive scholarship money to award to students pursuing art in college.
The Festival will be located in Kracklauer Park in downtown Mundelein, (100 N. Seymour Ave.) Artists will be located in the paved area for easy access by visitors, and local musicians will perform in the Gazebo in the Park, adjacent to the artists’ set-up.
September is a beautiful time of year for a festival, and the artists, musicians and good local food will be sure to attract a crowd.
Our Mission is to support the arts, provide scholarship money to deserving art students at Mundelein and Carmel Catholic High Schools, and bring more attention to Mundelein as an excellent place to live and visit.
