The Fine Arts Buildingbuilding-copy1

Our downtown Chicago facility is in one of the most historic buildings in the country, on a stunning 4th floor courtyard. Our 10 story building was built in 1884 by Solon Spencer Beman for the Studebaker company.

It is home to dozens of businesses associated with the arts such as fine and graphic artists, violinists, opera singers and dance companies. The Wizard of Oz was illustrated here, and Frank Lloyd Wright had offices in the building.

It is one of the most important buildings in Chicago, and visitors always enjoy and are amazed at the architectural gem that our facility is located in.
