With galleries popping up all over Chicago, the city is an art lover's dream. After you have seen the Art Institute consider heading to Wicker park for a more niche art scene.
The building holds only aspiring artists' studios. It is open to the public each day, but for a more up close and personal look come back for their "First Fridays." During the first Friday of each month from 6pm - 10pm artists will open their doors and give an behind the scenes peek at their process.
Not enough room in your suitcase to take a piece home? Everyone at Flatiron is very friendly and it is generally a no-pressure environment. Feel free to ask questions and learn about the Chicago art scene.
