The Art Center offers a comprehensive roster of programs that work in concert to make contemporary art more approachable. It does so by involving the community in dynamic engagement with art and artists through exhibitions, artist talks, studio art classes, an international residency program, free public events, and professional development opportunities for artists.
Outside its walls, the Art Center’s outreach programs in historically underserved neighborhoods bring the visual arts to Chicago youth, their teachers, and their families. Offers classes for all ages & experience levels, from drawing & painting to exploratory digital art. And brings artists from around the world to create & collaborate right here in Chicago.
