FLATS STUDIO Application

Apply Within

FLATSstudio is looking for inspired Chicago artists who are eagerly seeking studio space to display his or her artwork in a gallery setting. FLATSstudio is our way of using empty storefronts & vacant commercial spaces in FLATS™ buildings to support, engage & encourage the artistic spirits of our neighbors. At FLATS, we believe that any open space can become a canvas for the arts.
