Interested in Donating your artwork?
We are currently accepting donated pieces from artists throughout the Chicago community and beyond! 100% of the sale of all donated pieces will go to the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights and the ACLU.
We want to represent a diverse range of artists, and we especially encourage artists who represent marginalized communities to showcase their work.
Artists should provide a sale price for their art that does not exceed $500. In an effort to remain accessible to all members of our community, we prefer art in the $20-$100 range.
Pieces must remain under 24x36” in size. Three-dimensional pieces are welcome, but should not exceed 12x12x12” in size.
All pieces must be in hangable condition (hanging wire preferred).
The value of all sold pieces will be tax deductible for participating artists.
