"If you want to learn about Black people, all you have to do is go out there and sit on the front porch."
Front Porch Arts Center is a nonprofit organization on the Westside of Chicago. Our mission is to reclaim, re-imagine, and celebrate Chicago's Westside art, community and culture.
Front Porch Arts Center was created in early 2019 to meet the artistic needs of Chicago's Westside communities that although rich and culturally vibrant, are artistically and economically underserved.
We showcase and promote African-American culture and history by creating spaces to explore and celebrate our beautifully complex Westside narratives through all the arts.
