We saw three sites in the Jefferson Park/Portage Park area: Portage Arts Lofts, and visted some of its tenants (Inside Out Art Studio & Mask Shop and the National Veterans Art Museum), the Portage Theater, and the Jefferson Masonic Temple.
Next on our list was the Bath House Cultural Center (1019 N. Wolcott), which is one of four remaining bathhouses built by the city; it’s been converted into residential and meeting spaces.
The last stop was in the Gold Coast area to the Graham Foundation at 4 W. Burton Place; the Prairie-Style mansion used to be known as Madlener House.
Here are some of my photos – as you’ll see I did not take pictures at every site (or they didn’t turn out).
I am already looking forward to Open House Chicago 2017.
Peace, love, and solace
