ArtsSpace Program

Recognizing that one of the most valuable resources DCASE has to offer is space, in 2018 DCASE launched the ArtsSpace Program, providing a variety of opportunities for cultural organizations to access space at Millennium Park and the Chicago Cultural Center.

 

DCASE’s current ArtsSpace Programs are:

 

ArtsSpace Program – Michigan Avenue Galleries

The 2020 Michigan Avenue Galleries (MAG) ArtsSpace Grant Program guidelines are now available.

Application deadline is Friday, May 31 at 5pm CST

The MAG grant awards 12 – 19 weeks of exhibition space at the Chicago Cultural Center, plus a $10,000 stipend to cover artist fees and expenses. This year will be open to individual curators and artists with a demonstrated record of curatorial experience and achievement. Applications can be submitted by individuals, or by organizations with which the curator is affiliated. There are two grants available for 2020.

The goal of this program is to elevate the careers of Chicago-based artists and curators, and to strengthen the diversity of artists represented in the Chicago Cultural Center’s galleries.
