CHAMPAIGN — The I.D.E.A. Store is seeking artists to submit work for its 2014 Hatch art festival.

After a successful inaugural event in March, the Hatch Creative-Reuse Art Festival will be back Feb. 28-March 15, 2014, in Champaign.

Produced by The I.D.E.A. Store, Champaign’s creative-reuse marketplace and an earned-income enterprise of the Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation, Hatch is again expected to draw artists, art appreciators and shoppers from central Illinois and beyond.

The festival will feature work by local, regional and national artists who are known for creating whimsical and sometimes functional work from discarded materials that might otherwise be headed for the trash heap.

Festival organizers seek artists to apply to Hatch’s juried art exhibition and/or juried art fair. Artist information and applications are available at The deadline for applying for entry is Nov. 15.
