Our 3rd Friday Studio Series features artists from around the world. The Zhou B Art Center opens Exhibitions every 3rd Friday of the month with an evening reception from 7pm-10pm. These events are free of charge and provide the community of Bridgeport and the Chicago area a unique opportunity to explore a blend of international and local art. 



We feature exhibits from like-minded artists who inspire us and are equally passionate about social change. We host at least 2 group shows per year and open our doors to solo artists as well. 









Our studio hosts private painting parties, workshops and trainings, date nights, special performances, and more! We also collaborate with other organizations and venues to bring quality experiences that empower and ignite change!

Interested in booking a private painting party for you and your friends? Email us at for availability.
