Represented districts include: LaGrange District 105, Butler District 53, Riverside District 96, Komarek District 94, Gower District 62, Franklin Park District 84, Hillside District 93, Pleasantdale District 107, Community Consolidated School District 181, Highlands District 106, River Forest District 90, Oak Park District 97, and Western Springs District 101.
District 107 Superintendent Dr. Mark Fredisdorf is working with the schools' art educators to plan the event. "The WSCAE school districts are proud to offer this showcase of the visual arts created by our incredibly talented students. We have equally strong art teachers, who are eager to come together in recognizing the hard work and creativity of so many young people. We look forward to welcoming the residents of our west suburban community for this event, in the beautiful setting of Cheney Mansion."
