Illinois Arts Alliance Changes Name & Mission

From the Illinois Arts Alliance, known now as Arts Alliance Illinois:

"We have a modified name that puts the arts first and makes "alliance" more prominent, emphasizing our shared beliefs and collective action.

We have a new visual identity that symbolizes the many vibrant, creative voices that come together with greater focus and power through the work we do.

We have a new articulation of our mission: "Give Voice to a Creative State." This strong call to action acknowledges the power of voice to change lives, change attitudes, and transform neighborhoods and communities throughout Illinois.Whether you are an artist, an educator, an administrator, a community leader, an activist, a patron, or someone simply concerned with the quality of life in Illinois -- we all give voice to a creative state."

And if you don't live in Illinois, support your state's art groups!
