Heritage Corridor

The Heritage Corridor Community Associates, formed in 1999, includes members from Bureau, Grundy, La Salle, Livingston, and Will counties. Communities along the Heritage Corridor, within proximity of Interstate 80, make up the core of this group's membership.

Many of Heritage Corridor's 127 members live over 100 miles from the Art Institute, yet still participate fully in illustrated art lectures, gallery walks, and other events. The group also organizes local programs and trips to other cultural venues. All programs are coordinated through the Art Institute.

Members reside in the following zip codes: 61350, 61354, 60450, 61356, 60420, 60551, 60435, 61364, 61362, and 61301.

Unless otherwise noted, programs are for Community Associates members only.
