In our School, we unabashedly believe that art and art history are fundamental to ensuring our collective, creative futures. 

Your gift will help provide much-needed scholarships for students with great need and awesome talent and vision, improve studio spaces for our art students, provide much needed research and travel funds to encourage their ambitions to make work and engage in transformative research, and bring the most provocative and challenging contemporary artists and scholars to campus for public lectures and community conversations that expand our horizons of thought and action.

As Chicago's major, public research university, UIC and the School of Art & Art History are committed to diversity and inclusivity, excellence and radical imagination, critical thinking and groundbreaking research. This work has a direct impact on how people live in, think about, and experience our communities and the world.
