The ci|creative (central Illinois creative community) mission is to provide resources, opportunities, connection and education to attract and retain the creative community within central Illinois. Our goal with our summer series indoor art fair is to help local creatives gain visibility and revenue this summer, as well as introduce ci|creative to the community.

Booth or wall space will be $30 per entry. We encourage boothers to be creative with their set up. For boothers, one table (various sizes) and one chair will be provided. Bring materials, table top shelves, brochures and business cards to help promote your work.

CONTACT KELLY ROATH @ 309-868-4062 OR AGGRESSIVA2@YAHOO.COM

Booth fees and paperwork will be collected on Wednesday, July 1st, between 4:30 and 8:00 pm at the ci|creative space. This is housed in the space formerly occupied by Kirkland's at The Shoppes at Grande Prairie. Here, you will be able to fill out paperwork, check out the space and the location, and pick up promotional fliers and posters for you to advertise yourself. The volunteers at ci|creative will be driving the marketing and promotion of this event also. 

Wall artwork will need to be delivered to the ci|creative space on Tuesday, July, 8th between 4:30 and 8:00pm ready to hang. Our Gallery staff will carefully hang framed artwork for you. (No unframed prints will be hung but should instead be sold from tabletops or within the booth spaces). In the case of unframed sculpture or art you would like hung, please forward photos for approval. 

Entrants will be expected to arrive early on July 11th to tweak and set up the rest of their areas. Boothers should plan to set up the night before on Friday, July 10th from 4:30 pm until 8 pm with the help of the Gallery staff.

p.s. forgive me if you get more than one of this notice.  We are still working on consolidating all our lists into a singular.  Patience is appreciated.
