In Chicago and across the country, nonprofits are compiling resources and raising funds for artist relief during the pandemic. We’ve created our own bank of resources, like the ones listed below, which also includes links to financial, food, and housing insecurity assistance.
Art has the incredible power to unite, particularly in times of uncertainty. At SAIC, our community is driven by the spirit of engagement and the desire to make positive change in our world. In the weeks to come, we’ll be honoring our citizen artists, taking a look at the way alums like Rashid Johnson (SAIC 2003–04, HON 2018), Aram Han Sifuentes (MFA 2013), and Darryl DeAngelo Terrell (MFA 2017) are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
