Arts + Public Life


As a neighborhood platform for arts and culture in Washington Park, Arts + Public Life (APL) provides residencies for Black and Brown artists and creative entrepreneurs, arts education for youth, and artist-led programming and exhibitions. Our mission is to be a dynamic hub of exploration, expression, and exchange that centers people of color and fosters neighborhood vibrancy through the arts on the South Side of Chicago.
