Established in 2001, the Bridgeport Art Center is a visually breathtaking creative home for artists, designers, and professionals. Located in the former Spiegel Catalog Warehouse, this 500,000 square foot building boasts high ceilings with wood beams, exposed brick, and large windows with incredible city views. Bridgeport Art Center is a focal point of the emerging and evolving Chicago area art scene and draws artists and visitors throughout the U.S. 

Since inaugurating its Gallery Program in 2012, Bridgeport Art Center has presented over 30 exhibitions, showcasing more than 400 artists. The growing demand for exhibition space led to the creation of the newly constructed 3rd Floor Gallery. With a total of 5,000 square feet, this gallery features 500 linear feet of wall space, beautiful new hanging partition walls, and exceptional gallery lighting.
