The Clifton Cultural Arts Center will be relocating from our current home at 3711 Clifton Avenue in late summer 2018. CCAC’s original home, the 53,000 sq. ft., 1906 Clifton Elementary School building, is slated to become a new CPS neighborhood school during the 2018-19 school year, serving children from Clifton, CUF and Spring Grove Village (also known as Clifton Area Neighborhood School, or CANS).
CCAC is a multi-purpose community arts and cultural center that has seen an attendance of more than 200,000 individuals and families since opening in September 2008. A hub for creativity and community connections, CCAC provides classes in five disciplines, summer camps, free community performances, educational programs, art exhibitions, space for events, meetings, offices, studios and rehearsals, and has served as a community learning center partner for Fairview-Clifton German Language School, Rockdale Academy and South Avondale Elementary.
