Gallery 37


Gallery 37

Gallery 37 was a job training program created in 1991 by Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs' Lois Weisberg and Maggie Daley, wife of current Mayor, Richard M. Daley. Its purpose was to attract artistically inclined city youth to work as apprentice artists at a vacant downtown lot known as Block 37, bound by State, Dearborn, Washington, and Randolph streets. Nevertheless, Gallery 37 maintained satellite sites at Grant Park, and many of Chicago's public high schools.

The program was open to young people between the ages of 14 to 21 living within the city limits. Gallery 37 initially was a summer program, but later expanded its operations during the fall and spring at hours that allowed apprentices to continue attending school during the day. More importantly, Gallery 37 offered young people the opportunity to work with professional artists, such as Gladys Nilsson [http://www.natsoulas.com/html/artists/gladysNilsson/gladysNilsson.html] .
