Uptown Exhibition and Performance Events – Free and Open to All Ages

Beacon Street’s mission, to build community through diversity, has always reached beyond its local boundaries, as we continue to generate a global vision through art, performance, and arts education in the many diverse communities throughout the Chicagoland area. Stemming from our central downtown location, Beacon Street provides resident and visiting artists with many opportunities to gain exposure and share work with a range of diverse audiences located all across the city and beyond.

Beacon Street continues to offer free multi-cultural performance and exhibition events in collaboration with longtime partner Clarendon Park Community Center.
