    Arts & Culture in Chicago

    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Marwen is an arts education organization created to educate and inspire under-served youth through the visual arts. For the past 25 years it has provided free, rigorous arts programming for Chicago students in grades 6-12 who would not otherwise have access to art education. Marwen serves more than 2,000 students each year through visual arts courses, college application support, and career programs that help them guide their own creative process, cultivate their voice, and plan for the future. Marwen's long-term goal is not to produce professional artists, but to help its students become creative, productive, and civically active adults.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Marwen $262,500 between 2002 and 2015.
