Welcome to the Oak Park Area Arts Council (OPAAC)! For over 40 years, the Arts Council has been the focal point for artistic activity in our communities. Our goal is to celebrate, support, and promote the local artists and arts organizations that strengthen and connect our communities. The arts have an immeasurable and intrinsic value to the tri-village area of Oak Park, River Forest, and Forest Park. We hope to foster the integral and enriching impact that the arts contribute to the lives of everyone in our community. Please visit our website pages to learn more about our programs and services.
