The Fourth Annual Little Village Art Festival is looking for you!

For the past four years VILLARTE along with the help of Artists, Photographers, Performers, Educators, Students and others have converted empty storefronts, businesses and community centers into spaces of art and creativity for this three‐day event! Please join us as we once again celebrate the beauty of our community!

We are looking for all mediums of visual and performance art to be part of the The Fourth Annual Little Village Arts Festival running Saturday, October 4th and Sunday October 5th, 2009 with an opening night celebration on Friday, October 3rd, 2009.

  • 2D (Drawing, Painting, Works on paper, Photography, etc.)
  • 3D (Sculpture, Installation, Assemblage, etc)

We are accepting works from Artists in all levels of experience
