A trip Downtown to The Fine Arts Building (410 S. Michigan Ave.) was truly a fascinating one. The Fine Arts Building is from 1885 filled with various studios of creators and artists, makers and coaches, and so much more. One of the quirkier traits of the building is its old-fashioned and hand-driven elevators.
With thanks to Ms. Thomas and Mr. Henry, who sponsored our trip, it was a great experience as a whole.
We adventured through the halls, seeing various types of studios. Our first stop was through a small, sheet music store that varied from Classical to Jazz, Vocals to Saxophone.
After a quick bite of pizza at Boni Vino, courtesy of Mr. Henry, we met different artists; some visual artists, even some musicians. To conclude the trip, we met with a violinist who makes and repairs violins as well. We were even offered to try and test one of his violins. Violin is NOT as easy as it looks, lesson learned.
