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.

Contact curator@bridgeportart.com for more information and pricing.

The art center is also available for private events and space rentals. 

Open Studios:
Join us every third Friday of the month from 7-10pm when painters, sculptors, photographers, fashion designers, woodworkers, and mixed media artists open up their studios with interactive demonstrations and special events. Explore our art galleries and enjoy complimentary wine and refreshments at this free event.
