Review for The Arts of Life, Inc., Chicago, IL, USA
About 5 years ago, I was lucky enough to find myself at the annual Chili Cook Off - a heart and soul (and belly) warming charity event hosted by a very special organization, The Arts of Life. They’re a Chicago area organization focused on adult artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities. After just this one event, I immediately fell in love. As I learned more about their mission and their truly innovative approach to creating vocational opportunities for their artists, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I currently serve on the Executive Board, and fall deeper and deeper in love with the staff, artists, volunteers, and community every day. There's something about the feeling you get when you walk into their studio, that you just can't put into words. I couldn't speak more highly of this organization!
