Chicago Sights

Halsted Street

  • Neighborhood/Street

Fodor's Review

Since the late 1960s, Halsted Street near 18th Street has lured a large number of artists, who live and work in the mixed-use community known as the Chicago Arts District. Its street-level galleries and studios have put Pilsen on the map as an art destination, and innovative spaces abound. The best time to visit them is on the second Friday of each month from 6 to 10 pm, when 30 artists open their doors to the public. Expect visual displays, interpretive dance, installations, music, and performance art. Most studios also have regular weekend hours or are open by appointment.
