Although many Southland Arts member organizations have postponed face-2-face events and/or temporarily closed their venues and facilities, due to the impact of CoVid -19, there are ongoing virtual events being offered. Check out SPECIAL EVENTS tab for current offerings.
The Southland Arts website links you to our member organizations' websites for up-to-date information about activities and unique ways of bringing the arts to the community during this crisis.
Look for links to past performances, "best of" slide shows, and other virtual and digital arts experiences.
The members of Southland Arts continue to monitor this situation and look forward to when the arts are accessible to the community at the many theaters, galleries and events throughout Chicago’s Southland.
Southland Arts is an organization which seeks to enrich the lives of our community. Southland Arts promotes the Southern Suburbs as a vibrant family-friendly destination and encourages connection, knowledge exchange, and resource-sharing among arts, municipalities, and businesses.
The Southern Suburbs of Chicago represent the heart of America with family-friendly villages, strong education systems, award-winning park districts with vast recreational opportunities, a vibrant arts scene, affordable housing, convenient shopping and transportation, welcoming public spaces, and perhaps most distinctively, diverse and engaged communities.
