The Illinois Arts Council is located on the 10th Floor of the James R. Thompson Center at 100 West Randolph Street in Chicago. You may use the map below to determine the best directions:
All visitors to state government offices including the Illinois Arts Council in the James R. Thompson Center (JRTC) will be required to submit to a security screening before being allowed access to the elevators. Visitors will be required to show a valid government-issued picture I.D. and pass through metal detectors. In addition, all bags and items carried by visitors will be searched by the Illinois State Police Protective Service Unit (PSU).
If you are planning to attend a scheduled meeting or workshop at the JRTC, it is highly recommended that you allow extra time for the screening process.
