18th St. Pilsen Open Studios is October 18th & 19th, 2014

This fall, one of Chicago’s most artistic and culturally vibrant neighborhoods will be gathering as a community to celebrate and host the eleventh edition of one of the city’s largest independently-produced open studios.

The 12th annual edition of 18th St. Pilsen Open Studios, one of the premier events of the citywide Chicago Artist Month, will take place in various locations along Pilsen’s 18th Street Corridor. Saturday, October 18 from 12noon to 8pm, and Sunday, October 19, 2014, from 12noon to 6pm.
