On Saturday, September 23rd, First Unitarian Universalist Church of Wichita will host EcoFest 2017 as part of
a campaign to create environmental awareness and promote sustainability. This fourth annual family-friendly
celebration is designed to inspire and empower people to live green. EcoFest will showcase environmental
stewardship and eco-innovation through eco-demonstrations, vendors selling upcycled, repurposed, and recycled
products, food, earth-friendly art, and fun activities for all ages.
We invite all artists whose art has an environmental message or is based on recycled, repurposed or
upcycled products to participate in our unique festival and art show. In addition to being viewed at EcoFest
on September 23rd, this year’s art will also be viewed by the public on August 25th as a part of the Wichita
Final Friday Art Crawl event. Artists’ eco-conscious pieces will be hung on Friday, August 18th and remain
through Sunday, October 1st.
Artworks may be offered for sale with a portion of the purchase price going to First Unitarian Universalist
Church. You may choose to pay a 15% commission or $50. Artwork must be comprised primarily of recycled/
upcycled/repurposed materials or have an apparent environmental theme.
Please provide identifying cards/price tags to go with each item, and an 8.5×11 bio sheet. If you have questions,
please contact co-chairs: Marcia Ellsworth, 316-688-5352, email@example.com, or Vivien Minshull-Ford,
