CNL ART CONSULTING (CNL) believes artists deeply impact and shape our communities. Artists identify alternative ways of thinking and bring new ideas to the forefront in innovative ways. Artists have the capacity to actively engage our imagination, contribute to society, and make meaningful, deep change.

CNL is committed to working closely with their clients to create dynamic art programs that reflect an organization's vision and brand, while capturing the imagination and innovation of Chicago's creative community (and beyond).

We partner with our clients to create dynamic art programs that serve your organization's mission and aesthetic vision. 

We deliver curatorial expertise to individual clients and businesses on both an ongoing or by-project basis. 

We offer consulting to businesses with a specialization in program design, marketing, team-building and strategic development.

We facilitate workshops and provide individual consultation to artists to help them to realize their vision and build a sustainable career.

Whether you are a client looking to create an art program featuring Chicago’s dynamic community of artists, an artist looking to expand your career, or an arts organization looking to refine its programming and operations, CNL is committed to working closely with you to identify and realize your vision.
