An East Garfield Park art gallery will expand through a City-owned land sale approved today by City Council.
345 Art Gallery at 345 N. Kedzie Ave. will use the vacant, 0.14-acre City property to build a 600- square-foot addition onto its current building and create an outdoor sculpture garden. Valued at $49,000, the land will be sold for $1.
The $183,000 project, which will include a new concrete foundation, fencing, and landscaping, will showcase the work of local artists and provide the community with expanded facilities for private events.
The work is in part being funded by a $40,000 Neighborhood Opportunity Fund grant from the City, announced earlier this year.
