Lillstreet Art Center
Since 1975, Lillstreet Art Center has been a community of artists and students working side-by-side. From the beginning, our intent has been to offer an alternative space to create, connect, and find community. Today, we still strive to build and maintain an environment that inspires artists create fearlessly. Lillstreet Art Center supports the arts through a multifaceted arts education program, year-long artist residencies, art exhibition space, retail sales opportunities for artists, studio rentals and arts-based professional development.
In 2003, Lillstreet relocated from its long-time home — a converted horse barn on Lill Avenue in Lincoln Park — to a place in which we could truly grow. A former gear factory on Ravenswood Avenue offered us just that. Our 40,000 sq. ft. facility is a spacious, well-equipped art center offering art classes in over 20 classrooms.
