South Chicago Art Center (SkyArt)
The South Chicago Art Center (SCAC), or "SkyArt," led by Executive Director Sarah Ward, utilized the SBIF program to help with the renovations associated with their relocation to a larger facility on 91st Street on the Southeast side. SCAC started in 2001 and has grown considerably since then, providing arts classes and programming in both schools and now at the new SkyArt facility which houses administrative offices as well as studio space. The SBIF funds went towards roofing and HVAC work as components of the overall building (interior and exterior) renovation. With their new home, SCAC is now positioned for continued growth and success in providing quality arts education and experiences for Chicago's youth.
