Point Taken: Comfort Station

  • Comfort Station 2579 N Milwaukee Ave Chicago, IL, 60647 United States

Point Taken: Comfort Station

This iteration of Point Taken will be in the form of a multi-media art event at & about Comfort Station. The building originated as a shelter/ trolley station for travelers in the early 1900s, then stored the city's lawn equipment for decades, and since 2010 has been a thriving community art space. There will be a screening + performances with content that is in conversation with the past lives of the space.

Free!
