Jewish Artists Collective of Chicago (JACC) is a community of multidisciplinary artists connected through common heritage and committed to sharing ideas, enriching practices, and creating dialogue with community.
Jewish Artists Collective Chicago began in 2016 as an outgrowth of the inaugural Spertus Institute Midwest Artists Lab. We work in a range of media and styles, but are joined by a common mission of creating contemporary, engaging, and thoughtful work that reflects Jewish themes and values. Our work together and as individual artists has included group and solo museum exhibitions, artist talks and workshops, and educational programming for synagogues and other Jewish institutions. Our member artists are also experienced in creating site-specific work and commissions.
We, as a collective, are committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in all we do.
