This year may be different, but Luminarts’ mission to provide life-changing resources and opportunities to Chicago’s most exemplary, emerging artists remains the same. Opportunities they need now, more than ever.

Despite the changing landscape, Luminarts Fellows are finding new ways to create and connect. They are seeking inspiration, launching new projects, addressing critical social issues, and focusing on their craft, all while facing unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although our Fellows are re-envisioning their trajectories, they remain inspired and hopeful for the future, hope that is possible thanks to the generosity of donors like you.

We thank you for your support of Luminarts and invite you to join our community of donors by making an Annual Fund gift to Luminarts today. Your gift – at any level – will make a meaningful impact on our outstanding, young Fellows.
