The Arts of Life is people, with and without disabilities, creating an artistic culture to realize their full potential. Opened in 2000, The Arts of Life was the first program in Chicago to provide employment in the arts for adults with developmental disabilities. The studio serves as both an alternative day program and creative epicenter for its artists. Funded partly by the Department of Human Services, The Arts of Life also greatly depends on fundraising efforts and grants to sustain its program. This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
One-of-a-kind artwork created by The Arts of Life artists will be on sale for $20 or less (up to 75% off)! Additional merchandise such as screen prints, t shirts, handmade stationery, and other collectables will also be available at discounted prices.
