The Zhou B Art Center was founded in 2004 by the internationally acclaimed Zhou Brothers. Located in Bridgeport (CHICAGO), the Zhou B Art Center's mission is to promote and facilitate a cultural dialogue by organizing contemporary art exhibitions and programs of international scope. As a Center created by artists, for artists, the vision of the Center is to facilitate the exchange of contemporary art between Chicago and the international art community and promote the convergence of Eastern and Western art forms in the United States.
The Zhou B Art Center provides galleries, studio spaces, and a collaborative creative environment to a thriving community of talented artists. The primary purpose of the Zhou B Art Center is to nurture the creativity and growth of its nearly 50 resident artists. The Center is also home to some of the most thought-provoking and cutting edge exhibitions in the city. On the Third Friday of each month, the Center hosts a free exhibition and open studio event where families can explore its main exhibitions, galleries, and resident artists' studios. This event is the perfect opportunity for Chicagoans and tourists to support the local and international artists involved with the Zhou B Art Center.
