The Arts and COVID do not mix!  One requires groups coming together for entertainment, inspiration, the other requires groups to immediately disperse, no audience and often, no business.  Theaters, art galleries and museums were all forced to close or severely restricted by capacity requirements and the impact will be felt for years to come.

Your donations to the AAAA are more important now, than ever before. The pandemic exposed the lack of safeguards for many non-profits, and the arts suffered greatly. The generosity of our members, partners, and individual donors will help us fight for resources and policies that benefit Chicago artists and art organizations.

Your donation at any level of giving will help power our programs to support the community!

If you are interested in providing sponsorships, or In-Kind support for the Alliance please contact Jackie Williams at

Supported in part by Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, the Illinois Arts Council Agency,
