Cornelia Arts Building October Open House
Find Yourself and Lose Yourself In Art
at the Cornelia Arts Building’s October Open House
Friday October 5, 6-10pm
The Cornelia Art Building’s October open house is one of the longest-run fall art events on Chicago’s North-side, and is chock full of artwork on its two-full floors of working art studios. 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.
Over fifty local artists and artisans work here, including sculptors, painters, photographers, ceramic artists, print-makers, jewelry designers, textile artisans, and much more. For over thirty years this artist incubator space has provided Chicago artists, working in a variety of mediums, with professional studio spaces to pursue their craft. With one-of-a-kind hand-made artwork and gifts by both the building artists and our guest lobby artists: Tracy Frein and Jessica Brewer Prugh, the event offers something for the whole family to enjoy.
Established in 1986 in a former ice-house, the Cornelia Arts Building is one of the largest and one of the oldest all-artist studio buildings on Chicago's North side. Located at 1800 West Cornelia, the building rests 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. Free and open to the public.
