Calls for Artists

Since launching in 2005, Chicago Artists Resource has been committed to sustaining vibrant and accessible artistic communities through our online platform. In the 2016 - 2017 Fiscal Year, CAR was visited 1,789,806 times, with 1,255,298 unique sessions. CAR has 13,491 Facebook fans and 5,977 Twitter followers. Every job posting, call for artists, and event posting reaches nearly 80,000 users each month in the vibrant artistic community of the Chicago region and nationally. If you are making a post today, we ask that you donate the following suggested amounts. Featured Listings are posted above the general listings and featured on every page.

Please consider making a donation of at least $25 on Tuesday, November 28 to support Chicago Artists Coalition's #ILGive on #GivingTuesday campaign and meet our $10,000 match. CAC administers the Chicago Artists Resource, and is a nonprofit organization that is devoted to serving and supporting artists and the arts community. Their ability to provide these services and keep CAR running is due to the active participation and support of friends like you. In addition to CAC's #ILGive on #GivingTuesday campaign, Paypal will also be matching 1% of donations made until December 31st.

[NOTE: If you have not registered an account with CAR and/or logged in, please do so prior to making payment.]
