Students, show off your artistic side at Fair Game!

We are very excited to announce that, concurrent with the Downers Grove Fine Arts Festival on Sept 10-11, we will be offering local area students (K-College) an opportunity to create and display their work throughout the store and in the front window.

If you (or someone you know) would like to make a submission, here are a few of the details:

  • We’re looking for an original piece of art that can be hung up and displayed on the walls at Fair Game (sorry, no life-sized sculptures of the Cthulhu).
  • It can be a sketch, photograph, painting, collage, or any combination of similar mediums.
  • Any game-related theme that you find inspiration from is acceptable: Fantasy, Historical, Science Fiction, Dramatic, Humorous, etc.
  • We want to be able to display as many as possible, so we’re asking that submissions are limited to no larger than a 12″x16″. If you are REALLY set on doing something a little bigger – we may be able to accommodate. Send us a message to discuss.
  • All pieces submitted must be ready to be hung for display. Either a hook, wire or other means for us to hang from a hook in the wall.
  • Each student who submits an original work of art to display will be entered in a drawing to win a $20 store credit!

Submissions must be be dropped off at the store by Sept 5th so we have ample time to organize/arrange prior to the weekend festival. Please include a note card with the artist’s information (name, town of residence, age, contact info) so we can display and make sure art is returned to the proper creator.

Send an email to if you have any questions.

We are really looking forward to seeing the talents of our young community!
