Jack O' Lantern Pumpkin Walk Through




We are looking for artists of varying talent levels to be part of our team carving 5,000 Jack O’Lanterns starting August 12th.  These are not just any Jack O’Lanterns.  These are meant to be works of art hand carved into faux polyurethane pumpkins. Why so many Jack O’Lanterns? We are working to create a unique half mile trail walk event exploding with thousands of Jack O’Lanterns creating an whimsical experience bringing together art, nature and fall.

We are looking for artists, set builders and an artist project manager!

Job Description:

We are looking for artistic people of varying skill levels to help us carve thousandths (primarily foam) Jack O'Lanterns. Carve full time or part time starting July 12th.  It is going to take a lot of carvers so whether you are an artist looking for contract full time work, a student looking for summer work, a hobby artist looking for part time work or looking to carve pumpkins after their normal job please reach out to us during the day or in the evening. Pay varies.  We are located in Lake Zurich, IL! Please email Cindy at cindy@allcommunityevents.com if you are interested in being one of our carvers!

Bring Us Your Dead (Dia de los Muertos) 2018



Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday celebrated by many throughout Mexico and around the world. It is an ancient and enduring ritual in which the living commune with the dead – a mystical night when the veil is lifted between these two realms.

On The Day of the Dead, the lives of deceased loved ones are often commemorated by building altars or creating artwork and gathering around our offerings to share their stories. This is the intent and focus of our show this month.

Las Laguna Gallery is now accepting submissions of artwork commemorating or inspired by Dia de los Muertos. There are no restrictions on content, style, medium or context, but your entries should fit this theme, either traditionally or digitally, in some way.

We invite and encourage artists of ALL ages to participate and look forward to seeing your work. All local, national, and international artists, professional and amateur, are encouraged to submit their works for this art exhibition.

Acceptable sizes:  We do not have a limitation on size of works submitted but have found pieces over 48" to be costly for shipping and recommend manageable sized pieces.
