Make a Wave Graphic

Make a Wave is a groundbreaking artist-to-artist giving program that erases the traditional gatekeeper by inviting each of the previous year’s 3Arts Award recipients to select another artist to receive a surprise $2,000 grant—in effect sending a wave through Chicago’s brilliant cultural core.

We send special thanks to our 2019 Make a Wave Partner, the Siragusa Family Foundation, and to the Reva and David Logan Foundation, who provided general operating support that enabled us to increase the grants to $2,000 this year.
