The Artstour Roster is a resource for high quality live performances and exhibitions, featuring individuals, companies, and ensembles as well as visual and media arts exhibits. Roster artists present work in a variety of disciplines and includes visual and media arts exhibits developed by Illinois arts organizations with a history of producing quality exhibitions. Applicants are evaluated on the artistic and technical quality of their work; their professionalism demonstrated through management, promotional materials and references; and the artist's demonstrated ability to tour.
Artstour is the Illinois Arts Council's fee support grants program linking arts presenters with Illinois' wealth of touring artists and quality and visual and media arts exhibits. The program is currently suspended in FY2010.
