History of Pilsen Open Studios:

18th St. Pilsen Open Studios was started in 2003 by a group of longtime Pilsen artists, most but not all of them Latino. The focus of the event is on "studios" as the place of production, allowing the public a rare glimpse at where (and how) art in Pilsen is made. All artists involved in the event either work or live in the neighborhood or have a strong historical connection to Pilsen. A limited number of cultural spaces/cafes in Pilsen also participate in this event to show work from Pilsen connected artists who don't have a studio in the neighborhood.

We understand the core values this event has maintained throughout the years. It is with honor and care the organization will have this be a signature community event for many years to come.

Pilsen Arts & Community House now serves as stewards to one of Chicago's largest studio artwalks held each year in Pilsen.
