Welcome to Open Studio Project!

We are all equally artists - creativity has a place in everyone's life, including yours.

For more than 18 years, Open Studio Project has provided dynamic, award-winning arts programming in a welcoming atmosphere of supportive non-interference - free of all comment and critique. We invite you to reconnect with your own creativity while making art alongside others. Our unique art and writing process empowers you to bring meaningful change into your life and out to your community.

A non-profit arts organization located in Evanston, Illinois, OSP serves the entire Chicagoland area and far beyond. Our mission is to utilize and bring the creative process to interested individuals and groups of all ages and backgrounds, and to empower people to turn to art for personal growth.

Through our many workshops, classes, exhibitions, and community outreach activities, we encourage you to explore art as an arena for reflection and creative play.

Check out the many events and opportunities on our website, and don't hesitate to call for more information or drop by to visit.

Legacies: A Shorefront Legacy Center Exhibit
Legacies: A Shorefront Legacy Center Exhibit

Opening Reception:
The Legacies exhibit celebrates the current and historical contributions of the African American communities on Chicago’s suburban North Shore. The installation consists of a sampling of three exhibit themes: Portraits of a Community is a growing collection of 75 contemporary portraits of North Shore residents. Normal installation does not include names. It is intended to stimulate conversation between viewers and ask the question, “Do you know this person?”, “What clues in the photograph tell about them?” North of Chicago is a series of panels that share a brief history of the Black communities in Evanston, Wilmette, Glencoe and Lake Forest. Legacies is a growing collection of subject specific graphic panels on contemporary and historic people and organizations throughout the North Shore. The initial collection consists of 14 panels. Join Shorefront for a reception to be held on Saturday, September 10 from 3-6pm at Open Studio Project
