Woodstock Institute is pleased to be holding our 2016 Community Investment Award reception May 12th at the wonderful Stony Island Arts Bank, a beautifully refurbished bank building serving now as a community arts and culture space. Located at 68th and Stony Island, the Stony Island Arts Bank rehab project was conceived and executed by Chicago public artist Theaster Gates and completed ahead of the building’s opening in October 2015.
