The building opens its doors to the public only four times a year. At this December 8th event, come explore two full floors of working artist studios, and have a chance 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. 

With one-of-a-kind hand-made artwork and gifts by the building artists, and juried guest artist exhibitions by Lily Niederpruem and Felissa Onixte, the event offers something for the whole family to enjoy. Free and open to the public.

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.

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.
