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, the event offers something for the whole family to enjoy.

For thirty-six years this artist incubator space has provided Chicago artists with professional studio spaces to pursue their passion.

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. Our guest artist in our remodeled lobby is John Thompson, who is exhibiting landscape and still life oil paintings on canvas.
