Links to art museums, non-profit art organizations and art centers in Illinois. This listing includes Chicago art organizations. Art museums and non-profit art centers are valuable community assets. They rely heavily on memberships and on your support, so please consider joining and supporting them. The membership benefits are worth it plus you will be contributing to important local and regional art resources.

Non-profit art centers frequently provide exhibition space for new and cutting edge contemporary art as well as traditional fine art. Besides visual arts, many community art centers also provide facilities for music, performance art and other arts, as well as art education.

We suggest that you support local art galleries, artists, non-profit art organizations and art museums whenever possible. Please tell your art friends about and come back soon.
