ARC has had a longstanding gallery presence in Chicago. As a not-for-profit women’s cooperative, the gallery shows the work of talented contemporary artists, regardless of gender. The gallery also mentors women artists and supports the work of emerging and marginalized artists, and is completely managed by the volunteer efforts of its members. More than 5000 artists have shown work at the gallery since its inception 45 years ago; and we very much want to continue this tradition.
This year ARC faces a daunting challenge. Because of dramatically increased rent, the gallery must move to a new location. We are fortunate to have been awarded a $5000 matching grant from the Logan Foundation, so your donation will have double the impact! However, we will only be awarded the grant if we reach our $5000 goal with contributions from new donors. We are requesting your help in keeping this important institution alive.
