The Fine Arts Building , an historic artist’s haven since 1898, continues to draw local inspiration in one of the few remaining Chicago buildings designed specifically for working artists. Visual artists work in a variety of contemporary and traditional styles. Musicians practice, teach and audition with both the classical and jazz tradition well represented. Musical instruments are refurbished, bought and sold. Dance and drama companies plan and hold performances on site and around the city. Notable architectural and graphic design firms add their unique character to the mix. Several types of bodywork as well as yoga attend to physical needs, while dance instruction in ballroom styles adds a lighthearted air of romance to the building after dusk.
