Calling all Artisans!

We are looking for artists to make our cultural events the best in the region! Whether you are a professional or an amateur – we want you! Art and craft vendors, exhibit artists and performance artists are needed. No previous glow-in-the-dark medium experience needed. Illuminate your current work or design new. Get creative with lights, neon paint and more – whatever looks awesome in the dark! Performance artists only need to dress in glow swag to entertain. To participate contact Stephanie Heyer at sheyer@taltree.org.

No dogs allowed.
Event funding provided by Indiana Dunes Tourism, South Shore Arts, the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
