On Nov. 10, the Green Line Performing Arts Center, 329 E. Garfield Blvd., had its grand opening.

Conceived by Theaster Gates, a UChicago professor as well as the founder and former director of Arts and Public Life, the center joins a number of other arts buildings along the Arts Block that exist across from the Garfield Green Line stop.

The center houses a black-box performance space, separate rehearsal and practice rooms, a lobby and large outdoor courtyard. At the grand opening, a tent was set up in the center's courtyard to accommodate the large number of attendees.

Under the tent, there were performances by acts like Bomba con Buya, avery r. Young and Honey Pot. In addition to the performances, there were tables set up featuring Arts and Public Life programmatic partners, such as the knitting group Knit Around the Clock and the Jewelry of Mashallah. If the large number of excited attendants at the opening event is any indicator, this new center is sure to be a creative performance hub.
