Front Lobby Guest Artist Lucia Nieto

Currently over 90 local artists and artisans work here, including painters, sculptors, photographers, ceramic artists, print-makers, jewelers, designers, and much more. The juried front lobby guest artist is Lucia Nieto, sharing intensely detailed patterned drawings with a unique vision. 

Artist Jason Messinger in studio 109 showcases his signature tile murals, ceramic sculptures, and works on paper, as well as an assortment of artist made gifts. With one-of-a-kind artwork and special artisan-made gifts by the building artists, the May Open House offers something for the whole family to enjoy.

Building on four decades of fostering creativity, the venue completes a multi-year remodeling effort, with more than double the studios and artists, and more art than ever before. 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; Roscoe Village, Lakeview, and North Center. Located close to public transportation and only two blocks south of the Addison Brown Line CTA stop, the building has a free parking lot and street parking nearby. Events are free and open to the public
