Our Mission: ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation is a not-for-profit gallery and foundation whose mission is to bring innovative, emerging and/or experimental visual art to a wide range of viewers, and to provide a nurturing atmosphere for the continued development of artistic potential and dialogue. As a non-profit cooperative operated by a collective of women artists since 1973, ARC works to empower women by providing professional and mentoring opportunities in the visual arts. ARC serves to raise public awareness on various community-based issues by presenting exhibits, workshops, discussion groups and programs by, and for, underserved populations.
ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation is sponsored in part by grants from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, by a CityArts Program 1 Grant and a CAAP Grant, both from the City of Chicago, Department of Cultural Affairs, by an Arts Work Fund grant from the Chicago Community Foundation, the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, the generosity of the Ravenswood Bank, our members and our ARCangels.
