Be a part of this exciting time in CAC's history

CAC is the beating heart of the emerging art scene in Chicago. The lifeblood of artists, writers, and curator who have come through its programs courses through the city, creating a vibrant art town that I believe is one of the finest in the world to produce, see, and create a conversation around art.
-Erik Peterson, HATCH and BOLT alum, Manager of Family Program and Student Engagement, Smart Museum at the University of Chicago.

I am extremely proud to be a part of an organization that fosters and supports a new generation of artists, arts professionals, and collectors, and one that contributes greatly to Chicago's arts and culture community.
- Tony Karman, President and Director, EXPO Chicago
