Description

OPEN Center for the Arts provides a space where all artists can come together to share, showcase, refine and develop their talents, as well as support entrepreneurship opportunities in the arts while connecting their growth to the community. Located just south of Frederick and Anna Murray Douglass Park in Little Village, the original center opened in 2004 in a building owned by sculptor and entrepreneur Omar Magaña. When a fire consumed that building four years later, the community of artists, educators and community leaders rebuilt and reinvigorated the space, which today hosts art exhibits, workshops, family movie nights and other local events.

Visitor Experience

The gallery and patio will be open for self-guided tours. Visitors can enjoy SisterHood, a new exhibition by artist Alma Domínguez, and will have the opportunity to express themselves by creating their own calaveras (skulls) for the upcoming Día de los Muertos holiday.
