Cornelia Arts Building March Open Studios; Fri Mar 25 and Sat Mar 26


Cornelia Arts Building March Open Studios Two Day Event

On Friday March 25, 2022, from 6pm to 10pm, and Saturday March 26, 11am to 3pm, artists of The Cornelia Art Building, located at 1800 West Cornelia Avenue in Chicago, invite the public to their first open house of the new year! Visit one of the largest all-artist buildings on Chicago’s North side, and experience two-full floors of working art studios.

The building has undergone extensive remodeling upgrades, and has welcomed many new artists into the building. With one-of-a-kind artwork and special artisan-made gifts by the building artists, the event offers something for the whole family to enjoy.

Artist Jason Messinger celebrates his nineteenth year at the Cornelia Arts Building in his new studio space on the first floor, studio #109. Visit the artist to see his signature tile murals, unique sculptures, and paintings and drawings on paper, in his newly remodeled working studio space. 

For thirty-six 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 painters, sculptors, photographers, ceramic artists, print-makers, jewelry designers, textile artisans, and much more.

Visitors to the Open House can meet many of 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. The building has selected the abstract watercolor painter Victoria Slone as their special March Guest Artist, who will be share her unique work in the newly remodeled front lobby.
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.
