Visitors to the May Open Studio can meet many of the building’s talented artists and artisans in person, explore their art practices up close in their working art studios, and enjoy the opportunity to purchase artwork and hand-made crafts directly from the people who made them.

The juried guest artist in the remodeled lobby is John Thompson, who is exhibiting landscape and still life oil paintings on canvas. The Cornelia Arts Building will also be presenting art from the Stolen Sky exhibition, originally held in Chicago in April. Stolen Sky is an art exhibit and print sale of the latest artworks by modern Ukrainian artists. Most creators displayed in the exhibit are currently living and creating in Ukraine, and all displayed artworks have been created since the war began. All raised funds go to the National Humanitarian Aid Funds Of Ukraine.

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.
