Pablo Picasso said “Art washes away from the soul the dust of the everyday life.” The Cornelia Art Building invites the public to ‘wash away the everyday’ in a festive holiday reception. Visit one of the largest all-artist buildings on Chicago’s north-side, and experience the wonder of two-full floors of working art studios. Meet the building’s talented artists and artisans in person, explore their art practices up close, and find great gifts directly from the people who hand-made them.
For thirty-two years this artist incubator space has provided Chicago artists with professional studio spaces to pursue their craft. Over fifty local artists and artisans work here, including sculptors, painters, photographers, ceramic artists, print-makers, jewelry designers, textile artisans, and much more. With one-of-a-kind hand-made art and gifts by both the building artists and our guest lobby artists: Ellen Holtzblatt and Joan Geary, the event offers something for the whole family to enjoy.
Established in 1986 in a former ice-house, the Cornelia Arts Building is located at 1800 West Cornelia, at the border of three distinct Chicago Neighborhoods; Lakeview, Roscoe Village, and North Center. Located close to public transportation and only two blocks south of the Addison Brown Line CTA stop, the building also has free parking available in parking lot out front, and on neighborhood streets nearby. Event is free and open to the public.
