V2 Cigs Review




The Chicago Art Department is located in the South Loop a couple of blocks from the Roosevelt & Wabash intersection.

The Chicago Art Department is located a few blocks from the loop. Our neighborhood has and is still undergoing major changes. Within our three years at this location, condos have popped up everywhere. Within a two block radius there is now a Jewel Osco, BP Gas station, a great Italian Restaurant, an upscale Chinese restaurant and Sushi place.

We are within a short walk to the lake, as well as the Museum Campus and Solider Field.

The Chicago Art Department is also central to major art communities. To the north we have the academic art communities of Columbia College and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Just to the south is the vibrant Pilsen art community. Just to the west is the gallery district in the West Loop.


The school is accessible by public transportation. The Green, Orange and Red Line stops at Roosevelt Ave.

From I-90/94 exit off at Roosevelt Ave. Head E. towards the lake and take a right on Wabash Ave. We are located in the 1300 block.

From Lake Shore Drive, turn onto Roosevelt Ave. Turn L onto Wabash Ave. We are located on the 1300 block.

Parking can be difficult in our neighborhood, and as the neighborhood continues to develop, it looks like its going to get worse. There are public lots that are relatively inexpensive ($5-$10). During Bears home games you must have a special bears sticker on your car or it will be towed.
