Threewalls was founded in 2003 to provide greater support and visibility for the visual arts community in Chicago. Today, threewalls operates a research residency; commissions a major project by a visiting artist; supports four SOLO exhibitions; programs a SALON series; and partners with other organizations on publications and education.

Possibly the most well-known and exciting at-home gallery space is located inconspicuously in a dense Chicago suburb and is aptly called The Suburban.


While only in its second season, ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions) is quickly becoming known as a commanding residency model and excellent opportunity for emerging artists.
