Call for Artists

Benton House, a non-profit community center in Bridgeport, is hosting our 5th annual arts and music festival, called the Meme Festival, on August 25th, 2007, from 10 am to 6 pm. The festival will be held rain or shine, in and around Bosley Park, using our indoor location if necessary. The festival will feature dozens of local artists (like you!), bands like Cookies and Dirt, On We, and the Alleyways, bellying dancing by Read by Hips, Hips, a puppet show by Jamison Boudreau, and much much more!

We are seeking artists to sell their work at the Festival.

For a small fee of $50, any artist may rent an 8X4 ft table for the entire day, where you may sell  your original work. We take absolutely no commission from sales, so any profits you make are yours to keep. We are interested in any and all types of artwork! The only restriction is that all work displayed at your table must be for sale. Artists should also bring their own tablecloths. All proceeds from the festival (table fees, donations, etc.) will go directly to improving Benton House's youth programs. Please act quickly, as we are looking to fill a maximum of 30 tables, and the deadline is fast approaching. For more information about the festival and about artist registration, or if you have any questions, please e-mail For more information about Benton House, please log on to

Benton House is located at 3052 S. Gratten, Chicago, IL 60608.
