VANDALIA — The Vandalia Cultural Arts Committee has issued a call for artists for photos of animals for the Vandalia Art Park’s 2019 exhibit “Noah’s Park” – A collection of images featuring pets and critters doing their thing.

The committee is looking for photographs of animals. Your pet – maybe the squirrel that pilfers from your bird feeder – or even the raccoon that lives at the edge of your woods. If you have an interesting photo of an animal being an animal, they would love to see it.
