What is SLAC?

The South Logan Arts Coalition is a nonprofit organization made up of Logan Square residents who support and value the arts. We serve as a facilitator between the owners of empty storefronts and artists from the Logan Square area.

Our goals are:

1) to award local artists free or subsidized, temporary work studios

2) create pop-up gallery spaces

3) improve the appearance of the southwest commercial corridor in Logan Square, with a focus on Armitage Ave. west of Western Ave.

4) give artists increased visibility through promoted open studio events and studio visits from curators and established artists.

SLAC board of directors:
Gwendolyn Zabicki, Jason Walker, and Joe Tighe
