Call for Art


As part of a collaborative initiative between the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County and the DuPage Monarch Project, in May 2018 Mayslake Peabody Estate will be hosting an art exhibit featuring pollinators.

To help fill the exhibit, Mayslake Peabody Estate will be welcoming submissions Feb. 1 – April 15, 2018, of prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, or other hangable art that represent pollinators through the artist’s eye. If we receive more works than space can accommodate, a panel of visual artists who teach at the estate will select the pieces to fill the show.

We look forward to hearing from all interested artists in 2018, so happy creating!
