Time Out says

After purchasing it from the city for $1, local artist and philanthropist Theaster Gates turned this long-vacant bank into a cultural instutution. Inside the Stony Island Arts Bank, visitors can browse the archives of Johnson Publishing, flip through house music legend Frankie Knuckle record collection or view art on display in the venue's ground floor gallery. Regular events and exhibitions make this South Side spot a must-visit for lovers of art, music, literature and more.
