ACM will collaborate with Open House Chicago for the sixth year to commission composers to write music inspired by landmark buildings and then put musicians in the buildings to play the music every 15 minutes for self-guided tours.
This year we’re working with two buildings: the Golden Triangle and the Sedgwick Studio. Read about them below!
The Golden Triangle features a stunning variety of Asian and European art and antiques hand-selected by the owners over the last 25 years. It’s a truly amazing experience to stroll through this collection. What started as imported collectibles from Thailand has turned into an 18,000 sq. ft. design destination.
Situated underneath the CTA’s Sedgwick stop on the Brown Line was a ComED electrical substation built to power the trains. In the early 1960’s the building sat vacant for nearly a decade until it was bought by a collective of artists and turned into a magnificent set of studios. Today Sedgwick Studios is abuzz in activity as the creative home for six artists who create in the space and also give public exhibitions of their work.
