“Art Gallery” meets “Government Office”
OpenWall Chicago is located on the walls of the 47th Ward Office at 4243 N. Lincoln Avenue. The unique gallery setting features artwork by artists within and near the ward. When Alderman Ameya Pawar took office in 2011, he wanted not only to create a space to display the work of local 47th ward artists, but also to provide a warm, inviting atmosphere for constituents when they entered the ward office. Thus was the beginning of OpenWall. We are continuing to highlight visual talents of ward residents of all ages in quarterly showings.
