The Des Plaines Arts Council was founded in 1987 to promote involvement and appreciation of the arts. It is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization which operates as an umbrella group for many community arts organizations and events including the Summer Concert Series in Lake Park, the Community Mural Project, Lake/Winter Wonderland, Family Fest and The Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce After Hours program. The Arts Council has made a special effort to encourage young people to pursue their creative talents by awarding scholarships. Each year the Council provides $3000 in scholarships to students from 4th grade through High School, and since 1997 has given over $50,000 in arts scholarships.
