Join + Support

There are many ways to get involved with and help support the work of our organization, which has been empowering and supporting artists for 40 years.

Through our Artist Membership, we provide individuals with valuable opportunities to connect to a creative community, gain exclusive access to industry experts for career-building workshops, and build resources for successful creative careers.

Through our Collectors Circle Membership, we are educating and cultivating a dynamic group of emerging and established art collectors who share an interest in Chicago-based art and artists.

Through generous Donations, we are able to continue offering and expanding our unique programs which are stimulating a vanguard contemporary art movement in our community and helping to build Chicago's role as a creative capital. 

Our annual Starving Artist benefit is consistently one of the most innovative and talked-about events of the year, with all proceeds supporting our work and programs. A portion of ticket sales also is used to fund the annual Maker Grant funding opportunity for artists. 

Through Corporate & Community Sponsorships, we invite businesses and other entities to engage with our diverse community of practicing artists in unique ways, including event and program sponsorships, marketing initiatives and more.
