How long will the MCA Store be accepting submissions?

April 23–May 31

Can I submit something other than jewelry, fashion accessories, tech items, design objects, or home decor?

Yes. We are looking for all types of products with the exception of fine art.

Can I send you samples of my product?

Use the form below to send us images of your product—no samples please.

If I am in the neighborhood, can I stop by with my product for review?

We hope you stop in and find inspiration at the MCA Store; however, we will not be able to review your product in-person.

When will I hear back from the MCA about my submission?

We will notify you shortly after we receive your submission and contact you again in June if we would like you to present your product to our selection team for a final decision in July.

Do I have to be from Chicagoland for my work to be considered?

Yes! We are in search of local artists and designers to feature in our store. However, current MCA Trustees, employees, affiliates, and volunteers are not eligible for participation.
