The Wheaton Community Relations Commission invites local students to submit their original artwork to be showcased at the 2023 Festival of Cultures, which takes place on Sept. 17. The Commission will select one entry as the cover art of the Festival of Cultures program. The selected student artist will receive a $50 Visa gift card.
Since 2018, the Festival of Cultures has welcomed Wheaton and local area residents for a rich afternoon of music and entertainment, storytelling, ethnic arts and crafts, children’s passport activity, food trucks, and more. It is a meaningful day celebrating the diverse backgrounds and cultures that make Wheaton welcoming and strong as a community.
