The Art Center Highland Park

The Art Center Highland Park (TAC) is dedicated to education in the visual arts through classes, outreach programs, gallery exhibitions, and events. TAC is a community-based organization that has been in existence since 1960, whose goal is to ensure access to the arts for all ages and cultural interests. TAC inspires everyone from children through seniors to achieve and transform their world through more than 400 classes offered annually. TAC also brings national and regional art of established and emerging artists to our galleries through 20 exhibits of contemporary art each year to the surrounding community and Chicagoland area. The grant from the Foundation is being used to support TAC’s Community Building initiative, which includes daytime, evening, and weekend projects and programming for low-income youth and families, seniors, and working adults from Highland Park and Highwood. Through this initiative, TAC aims to be a community hub for diverse communities to experience and participate in the arts.
