Event description

Description

Arts + Public Life is excited to have the Green Line Performing Arts Center featured as part of The Chicago Architecture Center's Open House Chicago 2019, a free public festival that offers behind-the-scenes access to more than 350 buildings across Chicago. You’re invited to take a self-guided tour of the most recent addition to the Arts Block along Garfield Boulevard.

As a vital new theater venue and rehearsal space to support the arts across Chicago’s South Side, Green Line Performing Arts Center contributes to the cultural and economic vibrancy of the Washington Park neighborhood. The high-tech facility, designed by Morris Architects, is housed in four renovated storefronts, which at various points in history have been jazz and entertainment venues, including a restaurant with a live orchestra, a series of music clubs, and most famously Rhumboogie, a nightclub owned by boxing great Joe Louis.

At 6,600 square feet, the center includes the E & A Theatre, a black box venue seating more than 80 people; the Harris Studio, a separate rehearsal and performance space; and the DelGiorno Lobby.

Green Line Performing Arts Center, 329 E. Garfield Blvd, Chicago, IL

OPEN HOUSE HOURS: Saturday Oct. 19 and Sunday Oct 20, 12pm-5pm

Free parking is available on Garfield Blvd. Accessible via CTA Green Line “L” Garfield stop & #55 Bus
