The Skyline Council of Landmarks Illinois Presents the 5th Annual Skyline Social at Stony Island Arts Bank.

Designed by William Gibbons Uffendell and built in 1923, the bank at 68th Street and Stony Island Avenue was once a vibrant community savings and loan until it closed in the eighties. The bank sat vacant for decades until Theaster Gates, artist and 2014 Legendary Landmark, purchased the bank through his non-profit Rebuild Foundation. Now, the radically restored Stony Island Arts Bank is a 17,000 square-foot arts gallery, media archive, library and community center. Click Stony Island Arts Bank, for more information on this building.
