Wheaton, Illinois

Cantigny Park
Saturday, 10am-5pm| Sunday, 10am-4pm
Deadline: February 1

Cantigny Park is pleased to announce Art in Bloom, an outdoor arts festival.  More than 80 juried artists will showcase their work amidst Cantigny's beautiful gardens, grounds and museums. Cantigny is a 500-acre park and part of the Chicago-based McCormick Foundation. It is home to two museums, formal gardens, picnic grounds, restaurants and 27 holes of championship golf.

Art in Bloom is always among the park's most popular events.  Quality of artwork will take precedence over quantity of artists so the show may vary in size somewhat. Friday night set-up is available as well as an air conditioned artist break room, snacks, and    volunteers galore. This event is located on grass under large trees. Ample parking is another valuable asset!

Our publicity campaign will include, but is not limited to, radio, newspaper, eblast, Twitter, Facebook, postcards, web, Cantigny Visitors Guide as well as our Spring and Summer Events guide, posters and banners.  In addition we plan on working with many of Cantigny's partners, affiliates and sponsors to help make this art fair the best that it can be.
