Established in 1901, Joliet Junior College is the nation's first public community college. The main campus is on a 368-acre wooded site in Joliet. In 1981, the Fine Arts Building was added to the main campus. JJC is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The Joliet Junior College Fine Arts Department is a multi-disciplined department consisting of Art, Interior Design, Music, Speech, and Theatre. Throughout the year, Joliet Junior College's Fine Arts Department hosts a wide variety of musical and theatrical performances. The department's Laura A. Sprague Art Gallery features exhibitions by guest artists, faculty, and students.
