Chicago’s Historic Fine Arts Building has been home to some of the world’s most celebrated artists since 1898. When monthly open studios are back underway (currently paused due to COVID-19), you are welcome to come visit our spaces, meet other Puppet Fest folks and wander the Fine Arts Building’s open studios. We will have light refreshments, good company, brief performances, and lots to see. Public transportation is encouraged. Parking is available in the South Grant Parking Garage, and the door is 30 feet from the building. No parking validation is available. There are also paid parking lots on Wabash at Roosevelt and Van Buren.
Location: 401 S. Michigan Ave, Suite 433
