SOUTH SHORE/GREATER GRAND CROSS­ING—

Where Chicago - - NAVIGATE -

A short ride from the Loop at Lake Shore Drive and 71st Street, this area has a larger con­cen­tra­tion of African-Amer­i­can artists and arts or­ga­ni­za­tions than any other com­mu­nity in Chicago. Just steps from Lake Michi­gan is the beau­ti­ful old South Shore Cul­tural Cen­ter, of­fer­ing the­ater per­for­mances, art ex­hibits and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams. West of South Shore is Greater Grand Cross­ing, orig­i­nally a wet­land area. To­day, the neighborhood is home to many ar­chi­tec­tural and cul­tural es­tab­lish­ments, in­clud­ing the ETA Cre­ative Arts Foun­da­tion, the city’s only African-Amer­i­can-owned and man­aged cul­tural and per­form­ing arts com­plex.
