The Oak Park Art League has been in existence since 1921. The League’s mission is that it:

“be a place for everyone to explore their creativity and develop their voice.”

With that in mind, the League offers classes for adults and children, workshops, a lecture series, open studios and they allow all artists to display their work at special exhibits. As a way of celebrating their 90th year, the League held a National juried exhibit which was judged in October and is on show until November 18. The Oak Park Art League building is also available to be rented out for special events.
