West Loop Events: Artopia

Friday, April 16th, 2021

Looking for things to do near the West Loop this weekend? Artopia is one of the newest attractions coming to Chicago’s West Loop starting April 17th!

The avant-garde installation is opening in Morgan Manufacturing’s 32,000 square feet of event space, bringing “a month of kaleidoscopic immersion” and “blending the creativity of renowned artists with the wonders of modern technology” according to a recent article in Secret Chicago. Artopia will be a one hour guided experience with craft cocktails afterward. Highlights include interactive projection mapping, sound reactive LED pieces, 20 murals by Chicago street artists, eight sculptural pieces, large scale light art, and holographic pieces.

Much like the West Loop’s beloved WNDR Museum, Artopia also promises “Instagrammable” photo opps in one of a kind settings.

Artopia will run every Thursday through Sunday through May 15th at Morgan Manufacturing (401 N Morgan Street). COVID precautions include mandatory mask requirements, hand sanitizer in each room, a 50 person capacity, and a one-way guided tour route. Click here for tickets!
