ART ON ARMITAGE is a window gallery in Chicago dedicated to art exhibitions, installations and other creations on busy Armitage Avenue, just west of Pulaski. It brings art out of the confines of the traditional art gallery and into the realm of the public.
ART ON ARMITAGE presents lively, interesting and challenging work which is seen by passers-by in a raised window box. The intent is to demystify and make art accessible, respecting both the artist and the viewer by providing an artist statement along with the artwork.
Armitage Avenue is well traveled: several hundred people pass each day. The neighborhood is predominantly working class and Hispanic. The public has been very responsive to the artwork in the window and almost all stop and look at it.
