The The Illinois High School Art Exhibition (IHSAE) is hosting its annual Visual Art Festival on Sunday, February 25th, 2018 at the Zhou B. Art Center in Chicago, Illinois. This year, we’re offering a very unique opportunity to attend our event. Showcase what’s new in the world of art supplies, materials and equipment directly to art educators and art students. Take advantage of direct access to the consumers who use your products. Each year, the IHSAE is visited by over 3,000 people. Some of our guests feature 1000+ students and teachers from 100 of Illinois’ top high schools, not to mention countless art enthusiasts who visit our program each year.  

We welcome non-college/university/art-school businesses interested in supported art and art education to consider being a vendor at the big event. Colleges/universities/art-schools should instead register as a Sponsor here
