Letter from the Executive and Artistic Director
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, CAC closed all physical operations in March 2020 and looks forward to reopening to the public on January 6, 2021, by appointment only. Appointments will occur on Wednesday, 10am-2pm and Friday, 3-7pm. We care deeply about and make the well-being of our visitors, staff, and residents a priority. As COVID-19 evolves, so will CAC’s plan and security measures. Please check back to this page for new updates.
A maximum of three visitors are allowed in the gallery at a time. Visitors are granted a 45-minute appointment by signing up online, at least one day in advance.
COVID-19 visitor guidelines:
- Masks and social distancing are required at all times.
- Use hand sanitizer upon entrance.
- Temperature check before entry is required. Body temperatures at or above 100°F would prohibit entry.
- If you experience any COVID-19 related symptoms, we kindly ask that you stay home and reschedule your visit.

CAC is thrilled to announce a new, anonymous donation made to the SPARK Grant program.
This funding will allow for five additional awards to be given this cycle. Last year SPARK awarded 25 grants to Chicago visual artists in its second cycle. With the addition of this anonymous funding, SPARK will award an incredible 30 unrestricted grants of $2,000 to artists in 2021.
SPARK Grant is an award opportunity for visual artists who identify as ALAANA (African diaspora, Latinx, Asian, Arab, Native American), an artist with acute financial need, an artist with a disability, or as a self-taught/non-formally trained artist.
The program is generously support by the Joyce Foundation and anonymous donor.
