CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — This one time general operating grant will support the Alliance as it makes a necessary shift in its operating model to remain relevant and effective in advocating for the local arts sector. Arts Alliance Illinois is the state's only multi-disciplinary arts service organization, representing nonprofit arts organizations and individual artists throughout the state. It provides research assistance, public education, and information services through its programs. The Alliance was founded in 1982. Its goals are to increase public awareness about the value of the arts, advocate for higher levels of support for the arts, and promote a climate in which artistic expression can freely flourish.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Illinois Arts Alliance $225,000 between 2010 and 2013.
