Mission Statement:

CHICAGO ARTISTS' COALITION is a member-owned organization which offers services to individual visual artists. The board, staff, and members are all working artists. CAC maintains a Slide Registry of current works by living artists. It also offers a job referral service, group insurance coverage, a credit union, an emergency assistance program, and a monthly program on the "business" of being an artist. CAC's various publication keep its members apprised of advocacy issues, professional opportunities, and events where artists might exhibit their works.
