Start the Art Season with the Cornelia Arts Building October 4 Open House
On Friday October 4, 2019, from 6 to 10 pm, artists of The Cornelia Art Building, located at 1800 West Cornelia Ave. in Chicago, invite the public to see their artwork in their working art studio spaces. Visit one of the largest all-artist buildings on Chicago’s Northside, and experience the wonder of two-full floors of working artist studios. With one-of-a-kind hand-made artwork and gifts by both the building artists and their special guest lobby artists Mary Fedorowski and Tara Keating, the event offers something for the whole family to enjoy.
For thirty-three years this artist incubator space has provided Chicago artists with professional studio spaces to pursue their passion. Over fifty local artists and artisans work here, including sculptors, painters, photographers, ceramic artists, print-makers, jewelry designers, textile artisans, and much more. Visitors to the Open House can meet the building’s talented artists and artisans in person, explore their art practices up close, and enjoy the opportunity to purchase artwork and hand-made crafts directly from the people who made them.
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.
