CPAG is dedicated to maintaining a strong network of affiliated artists. Our team of artists is built on a foundation of mentorship, community, diversity, and the core principle that artists’ work is valuable. We sustain deep relationships — some artists have been with CPAG since its inception in 1971 — and support young artists with new visions of public art. We also offer artist apprenticeships.

Partner Organizations

We design projects to meet the social and cultural goals of each client. CPAG guides partners through the process of creating art that speaks to and for the community, providing artistic direction, project management, community-relationship building, and much more.


We offer for-credit and volunteer internship opportunities for college students. Please call 312.427.2724 or follow the link above.


There are so many ways to help CPAG bring art to all. We welcome your assistance with project assistance, event staffing, social media outreach, and more depending on your interests and skills.

Board Membership

Our board consists of individuals invested in the power of community art. We seek new members who are interested in working with us to support our goals.
