Have a great time with friends at Holts and support the PRCAC Spring Fundraiser, Bar Night for the Arts!! 

Support our NEWEST program! 

Arts for the Homebound

This year marks a NEW venture for PRCAC.  We are partnering with local Park Ridge artists and the Center for Concern to bring the arts to their clients who are homebound.  You can support this new program in our community through a donation and receive a lovely set of Artists in Park Ridge History notecards to use for notes to your friends near and far, showing them the rich artistic heritage of the place you call home!


Creating a dynamic arts community...

Who are we? 

The Park Ridge Cultural Arts Council (PRCAC) has worked toward the active enrichment, promotion and financial support of the performing, visual, and literary arts in the Park Ridge community since 1997.  We do this by providing grants and scholarships, sponsoring events, and promoting connections and collaborations between arts organizations.  To date, PRCAC has provided over $100,000 in grants and scholarships in Park Ridge.  (Click here for history.)
