Gallery 400 is one of most innovative art spaces in Chicago, fearlessly presenting exhibitions that challenge, and artists who speak their minds and stretch our imaginations. We work tirelessly to support cutting edge contemporary art, architecture, and design through our landmark exhibitions and programs.

Our community engagement team has developed partnerships and programs that are expanding our audience and connecting the amazing work we present to people often underserved by the arts. And our programs are proving ever more relevant to that broad audience, both inside the university and across the city.

By making a gift to the Gallery 400 Annual Fund, you can nurture these developments and create a big impact. Because the UIC School of Art & Art History covers our base operating support, 100% of your donation goes directly to support our engaging programming and ensures that everything we do at G400 is free and open to the public.
