  • What is artlook® ?

    artlook® is an innovative online platform that provides the tools, information, and insights that help arts education changemakers do what they do better, together. artlook® helps schools and community partners connect, lets private funders understand the reach of their investments, and creates a powerful tool for advocates that informs policy discussions locally and beyond.

  • How does it work?

    Planned, designed, and developed in close coordination with Chicago’s arts educators, artlook® provides information on everything from which art teachers and arts partners are in which schools to what arts programming, coursework, and minutes of instruction is happening where. artlook® even provides critical information on what schools need as well as downloadable customized fact sheets and data files based on advanced searches.

The Data

Our goal is to help ensure that every student, in every grade, in every school has access to quality arts programming. artlook® helps make that happen by putting an unprecedented collection of information in the hands of teachers, principals, arts agencies, cultural institutions, foundations, corporations, and policymakers.

artlook is Growing

Since it was launched in 2013, artlook® has served as a springboard to exponential increases in students’ arts access in Chicago Public Schools. In 2019, Ingenuity partnered with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ "Ensuring the Arts for Any Given Child" program and local organizations like Arts Education in Maryland Schools (AEMS) to expand artlook® to six new communities: Maryland; Houston, TX; Jacksonville, FL; New Orleans, LA; Portland, OR; and Sacramento, CA.
