Local Makers Program for Oak Park Visitors Center

Visit Oak Park will be launching a Local Artisan program and are accepting proposals from artisans within 50 miles of Chicago. They will feature a curated collection of artwork along with objects and edible items that cater to tourists and locals. They encourage artisans whose work relates to communities around Oak Park or the city of Chicago.

The selected artists will be featured in a four-month display at the Visitor Center and will receive additional promotion through the Visit Oak Park website, social media and Local Artisan marketing campaign.

Proposals may include but are not limited to: functional objects for the home, decorative accessories, jewelry, apparel, notecards, fine art/prints ($250 or less), holiday, and artisanal-crafted (shelf-stable) foods.

Submission deadline is August 10, 2017 and artists will be notified on August 31, 2017. Artists and artisans must include a short bio and statement or description about their work. Proposals must be submitted online via Submittable with “LOCAL ARTISAN” in the subject line.
