FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Dear Friends; Last month’s catalogue featured our board, staff and students. The reaction was so good that it created a new problem: how do we top that? We decided to ask for YOUR help. In a moment of inspiration we created the catalogue contest, opening the cover design to the public. It worked. We had so many great submissions that it was difficult to narrow our choices down to the final few. Not only that, this opening up to the community fit our strategy and I’ll share it with you. Inspire, educate and connect. We plan to inspire by offering challenging works in our gallery, like the Voices & Visions, Women of Courage exhibits, but also our recent Invisible Words, Project Resist Fear and The Art of Giving Back. We strive to be a gallery with a social conscience and we will continue to find new ways to challenge ourselves and our constituents. We’ll educate – well you’re holding the catalogue right now so you know how we’ll do that. But we’ll do more. We’re inviting in groups from other communities, especially those who do not have as easy access to arts programming as we do. We’re planning guest speakers, pop up events and other ways to carry our message out into the world in as many ways as possible. So, like the catalogue cover, I’d like to open it up to you, our community. Tell us what you would like us to add. Give us suggestions for new programs. Share things you find interesting. Stop by and give us feedback, criticism, suggestions, share your ideas. We’re here for you, but we’re also here because of you. Connect with us. Let’s keep up the work of inspiring, educating and connecting by communicating.

OUR MISSION The Art Center Highland Park (TAC) is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to education in the contemporary visual arts through classes, outreach programs, gallery exhibitions and events. TAC is a community-based organization whose goal is to ensure access to the arts for all ages and cultural interests. The Art Center Highland Park is an Illinois 501(c)3 not for profit organization.

Sincerely,

James M. Lynch Executive Director PS – This is getting to be a habit, but I think it’s worth it. TAC HP has VERY few full-time people. Most of our staff budget is part-time, but the effort, care and professional is full time PLUS. The team that makes TAC HP work is amazing and I am honored to work with them. If you have time, come in and say ‘hello’; you’ll be as impressed as I am.
