Support Chicago Arts stands in solidarity with the Black community. To support, we are donating 100% of the profits of all face masks sales to the Chicago Artists Relief Fund. This fund was created by Chicago-area artists in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Chicago Artists Relief will be allocating microgrants of up to $300 each in order to support Black artists in the greater Chicago arts community who are experiencing financial repercussions due to pandemic-related cancellations. Founded in March, Chicago Artists Relief has raised nearly $100,000 and has distributed funding to over 300 artists so far.
