Below the CTA Brown Line's Sedgwick stop sits a Commonwealth Edison electrical substation built to serve the train. After removal of the transformers converting AC to DC in the early 1960s, the building sat vacant for more than a decade. Luckily, several artists saw potential in its high ceilings and spacious interior. They purchased the property in 1976 and converted it to studio space. Today, Sedgwick Studio is buzzing with energy as a live/work space for six artists: John Adduci, John E. Bannon, Sunny Han, Seaton Scarff, Ted Sitting Crow Garner and Michael Young. Inside, there's sculpture fabrication, public exhibitions and even a neon lab.
Guided tours will cover both the building’s history and the artists who create their sculpture within. The neon studio will be open at intervals throughout OHC weekend.
