An online arts publication, an organization offering programs & services, & a gallery: we’re all of those things. Our gallery is located at 2545 W. Diversey on the 2nd Floor of the Green Exchange building and is open Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm.
We work to provide the virtual and physical spaces that enable public art awareness. We specialize in affordable & emerging visual art, with a focus on illustration, collage, mixed media, & photography screen prints & giclees. We take pride in supporting artists, communities, and businesses in their efforts to make art a viable avenue for engagement & collaboration.
Shared Walls™ is our hallmark arts program in which we transform spaces both for businesses and the public through temporary art exhibitions that focus on emerging & affordable artwork. Revenue from private exhibitions fund FREE exhibitions at parks, libraries, schools, and community centers; spaces that have the need for art but don’t have the budget.
