Chicago Architecture

 Open House

Saturday, October 16

12 PM - 3 PM


Event by Shruti Vijay and Urban Sketchers Chicago


Every October, the Chicago Architecture Center hosts one of the largest architecture events in the world — Open House Chicago. The members of Urban Sketchers Chicago usually choose an Open House site and sketch individually at the site.

This year we are trying something new.

We have 5 different locations that we can choose to sketch. This way we can sketch together and report this great event. 

How to participate:
You can choose any one of the below location and meet on Saturday October 16, 2021 at 12 noon. 

  • Wait around for a few minutes for other sketchers to show up. 
  • Sketch anything you like at this site: architecture, people, neighborhood. In the end have a throw down and take photos of people and sketches. 
  • Post your sketches and photos on our Facebook group.
