Butterflies, Bugs & Flowers: Seeking Art for Monarch Fest!

The City of San Marcos Discovery Center is seeking art submissions for Monarch Fest on Oct. 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In an effort to celebrate the beauty of pollinators, the City is calling for five to seven artists who are interested in displaying pollinator-themed art. The art can include butterflies or pollinator-reliant insects, pollinator-friendly flowers, or other creative representations expressing the importance of pollinators in our environment.

Featured art will be on-exhibit inside the Discovery Center, and, therefore, must be able to fit within a 6' x 6' space.

Interested artists are encouraged to submit a sample of their art by email to Discovery Center Attendant Conrad Chappell or to register online. Registration closes Oct. 9.

For more information, visit the Monarch Fest! Facebook page, the Discovery Center website, or email
