I read this article in Crain’s NY about the profound lack of affordable spaces for artists in the Big Apple resulting in a bit of a mass exodus. Now, I don’t live in NYC so I have no idea how accurate that claim is BUT it did get me thinking about our incredible art scene in Chicago. We have some amazing artist loft/communities here for super reasonable prices. I thought maybe I would offer some of those up here in an attempt to both inform Chicago’s artists of their options, as well as maybe temp some New York artists with our amazing and affordable city. ;)

This is just the tip of the iceberg! So, artists…GET HERE. Chicago welcomes and appreciates you.
