Around the Coyote Mission Statement: “Around the Coyote, a 501(c)3 non-profit, supports, promotes and makes accessible Chicago’s multidisciplinary arts community. Our activities enhance public discourse and provide creative outlets for emerging artists. Year-round programming includes multi-media arts festivals featuring visual art, theater, dance, film, music, video and poetry in the spring and fall; art exhibitions in the Around the Coyote gallery; an artist-in-residence program; membership opportunities for artists and art aficionados; educational outreach for all ages through multi-media art workshops, lectures, collaborations with local schools and agencies, and career development workshops for artists. Programming is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, and the CityArts Program 2 grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs.”
Around the Coyote is a non-profit organization located in Wicker Park Chicago. The organization is focused on making multidisciplinary arts available for the Chicago community in many ways. Their support for new emerging artists is great; they present the artists in a professional setting. Their festivals throughout the year give multi-media artists and local schools the opportunities to participate, create, and are part of the Chicago art world.
