About Us

In 1971 a group of artists concerned with the relationship of art to society organized to form the Chicago Mural Group, later renamed the Chicago Public Art Group (CPAG). The founding mission was to establish creative partnerships between artists and communities in an effort to transform and enhance the lives of residents in urban Chicago neighborhoods. What began as a mural-based cooperative has broadened to include mosaics, sculpture, landscape design, and sponsorship of workshops, and symposia. CPAG is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit.

Chicago Public Art Group's office and studio, located in the South Loop, has a staff of four, consisting of a full time Executive Director, Managing Director, Program Director, Development Director and part time paid interns. In 2008, 40 subcontracting professional artists brought a host of invaluable skills and experiences to CPAG projects.
