The first chapter of Community Associates was organized in the early 1950s. Today there are 16 separate chapters, representing 3,200 active members. The Community Associates are committed to strengthening the Art Institute’s reputation as a world-class art museum through the dedicated efforts of the local boards. Outstanding lectures and other art-related events are offered to all Community Associate members both at the museum and in their local communities.
