The Community Art Collaborative (CAC) was created in 2004. The program matches talented community artists with nonprofit organizations, schools, or community centers. Since 2004, about 100 CAC members have worked with 40 different host sites. Their service expands the ability of their host sites to reach more Baltimore residents and engages thousands of neighbors in community art projects.
Community Art Collaborative members are committed to 10 months of full-time service through AmeriCorps, a national service program. CAC members teach and expand after-school art programs. Members also uses the arts to strengthen communities and bring people together.
