Time: 10:30am – 11:30am
Location: Stony Island Arts Bank, 6760 South Stony Island Ave, Chicago, IL 60649
The Stony Island Arts Bank is a hybrid gallery, media archive, library and community center in the South Shore neighborhood. Designed by William Gibbons Uffendell and built in 1923, the bank at 68th Street and Stony Island Avenue was once a vibrant community savings and loan. By the eighties, the branch had closed and the building remained deteriorating for decades. Reopened in October 2015 by the Rebuild Foundation, the radically restored building serves as a space for neighborhood residents to preserve, access, reimagine and share their heritage – and a destination for artists, scholars, curators, and collectors to research and engage with South Side history.
Join us for a tour of this special and beautiful community engagement space! Find out more about the Stony Island Arts Bank and the Rebuild Foundation here.
