Founded in 2009, the Chicago Urban Art Society (CUAS) is an emerging arts non-profit exhibition space and creative-use organization. Serving as a creative hub and a community, cultural institution, this mixed-use center promotes the works of contemporary artists, community organizations, creative-sector groups and arts practice and production. A trailblazing space in the East Pilsen Industrial Corridor and the first visual exhibition anchor tenant located in the city’s new arts district – Cermak Creative Industries District – CUAS aims to not only cultivate curatorial practice. Through exhibits, innovative teaching and learning opportunities, and non-traditional venue space, CUAS is by nature cross-platform and establishes its credibility through creative juxtapositions.
