From Prairie to Village - A Call for Artists

The Grayslake Arts Alliance (GAA), in partnership with the Village of Grayslake, seeks an artist or artist team to complete a piece of public art in honor of the Illinois Bicentennial celebrating both Illinois and Grayslake's history.

A purchase prize of $5,000 will be awarded and the winning entry will be unveiled at the Grayslake Village Hall on Friday, November 23, 2018.

The piece is intended to celebrate Illinois becoming the twenty-first state on December 3, 1818. The proposed northern border of that state stretched west from the southern tip of Lake Michigan, but upon entry into the union, the border was extended to include both Chicago and what would later become Grayslake. Grayslake was incorporated nearly 80 years later, after local residents cast their votes in favor of the measure at a hardware store located on modern-day Center Street. Information about Grayslake history can be found by visiting the Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum, or their website:

Project proposal must be received by July 31, 2018.
