Artists are unsupported & isolated. Businesses want to give back & are trying to differentiate, and community leaders are undervalued & overworked.
This trifecta creates a world in which we have fewer artists, bland corporate participation, and community leaders whose efforts are being fundamentally undercut.
The problem is one in which:
The systematic defunding of the arts means far too many kids and families don’t have access to the creative experiences that get us thinking about ourselves and the world in new ways. What’s more, data proves that cultural resources lead to improvement in a range of areas, including health, education, and safety.
And when we see the arts not being funded or supported properly at that level, we see an opportunity to make a difference through creativity, innovation, and heart.
We’ve created a model built on mutual benefit and shared value. Whether an artists, businesses, or communities, our services, programs and partnerships create a wheel of collaboration that turns art into impact.
Art is the catalyst, we are the conduit and you: the artists, businesses & community leaders we work with, fuel it all. By creating art experiences in non-traditional spaces with a focus on equity and accessibility, we mobilize our permanent art collection, art consulting, custom murals, & arts education services to make Chicago a more equal, creative, and connected place.
Our IPaintMyMind Wheel of Impact is a value generation and creative connection machine, and this is how it works:
