  1. About


Mission Statement: TRY IT, MAKE IT, SHARE IT.

The Chicago Art Department (CAD) cultivates new and emerging Chicago artists.

Founded in 2004 by three college instructors, CAD aims to benefit artists by exploring art and learning. Through exhibitions, artist residencies, classes/workshops, and community building, we are dedicated to cultivating new voices, ideas, and practices in contemporary art. CAD seeks to serve the real-world needs of young artists seeking to establish their personal practice, as well as provide a breeding ground of creative collaboration and exploration.

What does this mean? It’s ongoing arts explorations. Shows, classes, events, workshops, and interaction with Chicago arts enthusiasts. We invite you to attend one of our shows or sit-in on a class! Drop by the studio during studio times (posted on our google calendar, found on CAD’s home page), or reach out to a coordinator about a potential partnership.

If you are interested in flexing your skills, learning something new, establishing a studio space, participating in exhibitions, showing and potentially selling your art, developing yourself as an artist and meeting/collaborating with other Chicago artists, you should consider visiting CAD’s gallery on South Halsted or studio on West Hubbard!

The Chicago Art Department offers different types of arts learning opportunities, all aimed at artistic and professional growth. CAD aims for all of our programs to be accessible for local artists, meaning while each program carries different costs, fees are often minimal if not free. We are able to provide such opportunities because of fund raising efforts, grants, and ongoing support from those involved.
