West Ridge Artists is a group of visual and performing artists living or working in West Ridge, a neighborhood located on Chicago's north side. Our mission is to advance artistic engagement in our diverse community. We want to create common space in which to unite all people in the celebration of our shared humanity, unique talents and gifts. We hope to eventually establish a permanent facility of home in our community to provide space for classes, workshops,  exhibits and performances.

West Ridge was initiated and organized through the help of the West Ridge Community Organization.
