Chicago Sights

Fine Arts Building

Fodor's Review

This creaky building was constructed in 1895 to house the showrooms of the Studebaker Company, then makers of carriages. Publishers, artists, and even architect Frank Lloyd Wright have used its spaces. Today the principal tenants are professional musicians. Take a look at the handsome exterior; then step inside the marble-and-woodwork lobby, noting the motto engraved in marble as you enter: "All passes—art alone endures." The building has an interior courtyard, across

which strains of piano music and sopranos' voices compete with tenors' as they run through exercises. Visitors can get a peek at the studios and galleries and hear live music during Open Studios.
