Arts of Life
(West Fulton Market)
Arts of Life is a non-profit founded in 2000 with a shared vision: to create a working, person-centric, artistic community while providing a work environment of equality in Chicago. For artists at Arts of Life, a career in the visual arts is an opportunity for meaningful employment. Each artist has their own studio space and works independently from individualized project plans or receives 1:1 visual arts facilitation to increase their artistic skill set. Artists earn a monthly stipend for participation in the program with eligibility to receive bonuses based on personal annual art sales. They represent over 60 artists with varying levels of physical and intellectual disabilities.
