This exhibition is open to all artists ages preschool through 5th grade within 100 miles of the Kankakee region.

Not eligible are coloring pages, functional pottery, jewelry, clothing, accessories, furniture, other primarily functional art, or time-art such as video and film.

We will do our very best to display all work submitted. Selection of artwork will be guided by space and aesthetic consideration for the overall exhibition.
