Art Shoppe Grand Opening
The Chicago Athletic Association hotel—in partnership with Johalla Projects and Victoria Press—is proud to present the grand opening of ART SHOPPE, a temporary pop-up art shop located in the Chicago Athletic Association hotel lobby. Join the organizers, artists, and patrons for an opening event on November 3 from 6-9pm.
Art Shoppe is an exciting new platform for expanding your art book library, acquiring accessibly priced artworks, and feeling the pulse of contemporary art discourse in one cohesive space. The temporary shop is filled with zines, exhibition catalogues, books, and artists’ books alongside editioned prints, original artwork, records, and ceramics. Art Shoppewill also include a “gallery wall” dedicated to exhibiting artists from the Johalla Projects’ exhibition program, with new artists featured each month, offering an evolving space for viewing contemporary art.
Stand in the center of Chicago’s art community at Art Shoppe – now open with regular business hours Tuesday – Saturday 10am-6pm & Sunday 10am-4pm.
