What We Do

We bring communities together through art and design to make our city a great place to live for all Chicagoans. We engage residents and partnering organizations in creative endeavors that improve public space and advance the social, cultural, economic, and health goals of a community. Through our collaborative art and design process, people are empowered to shape how their environments look, feel, and are used, and to impact the future of their communities. Learn More


Our Work

The original art and design work Architreasures produces—from murals, mosaics and sculptures, to gardens, benches, and books—bring beauty and comfort to people’s homes and neighborhoods, reflect the spirit of our community partners, and make people proud of where they live. Learn More
