ArtConnectED understands the importance of building community and the role that the arts can play in bringing people together. The arts are an essential part of our culture, they allow us to have a deeper understanding of our emotions, increase our self-awareness, and also allow us to be open to new ideas and experiences.

 The Art Educator Exhibition is an annual juried exhibition developed by art educators for art educators who continue their studio practice while teaching in K-12 schools across Illinois. It is held at the historic and visually breathtaking Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago with up to $1,000 in cash awards.
