Source: Artists Invited to Submit Works for Forest Preserve District Centennial Exhibit at Mayslake Hall

The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County invites artists inspired by its 100 years of nature to submit work for the centennial “DuPage through the Artist’s Eye” exhibit, which will run Nov. 3 ‒ Dec. 9 at Mayslake Peabody Estate, 1717 W. 31st St., Oak Brook.
Artists who would like to submit drawings, paintings, photographs, prints or other hangable works should contact Mollie Fullerton at mfullerton@dupageforest.org by Sept. 30. Each email should include the artist’s name; the title, medium and dimensions of the piece; the preserve that inspired it (if applicable); the sales price (if applicable); and the artist’s top preference for display if submitting multiple works.
If Mayslake receives more entries than it can accommodate, a panel of visual artists who teach at the estate will choose the pieces for display. Selected artists must drop off their works at Mayslake Hall between 10 a.m. and noon on Oct. 31.
“This is a great way for people to share artistic talents that have been inspired by our beautiful preserves,” said Forest Preserve District Commissioner Jeff Redick, District 2. “I am excited to enjoy these tributes as part of our centennial celebration.”
“This provides a unique opportunity for artists to showcase their creative talents and connect people with nature,” said Forest Preserve District of DuPage County President Joe Cantore.
The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County has been connecting people to nature for 100 years. More than 4 million people visit its 60 forest preserves, 145 miles of trails, five education centers and scores of programs each year.
