If you’re working or exploring downtown, don’t miss the hidden gem that is the Arts on the Walls exhibition in the lobby of Eleven Stanwix.
Owned by Chicago-based Real Estate Management company M & J Wilkow, LTD, the exhibition at Eleven Stanwix features two exhibitions annually, highlighting new local artists within each exhibition. Each presentation is displayed for approximately six months on kiosks and pedestals within the lobby, so you have plenty of time to check it out.
The current exhibition is on display through the end of spring, 2022.

Stacyee Pearl interprets and mirrors culture and community through the use of layered medium, materials, and movement. Described as "a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light cannot get out", Black Holes have been a mystery throughout history. With "The Secret Life of Black Holes", Staycee contemplates a fantastical existence where all things are possible, and where pure Blackness is most attractive and desirable.
Gabriela Ortiz is a Mexican artist based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her artwork shows the influence of the bright colors and textures of her Latin American roots. Her paint application is full of movement, fast and bold strokes, typical of the way of life in fast-paced Mexico City. The subjects of her paintings are a mixture of nostalgia for her home country, the novelty of new places, and her present experiences.
