One Strange Bird is an art center featuring handmade gifts, apparel, and art in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood. The store carries exquisitely crafted, brazenly unique art, clothing, accessories, home decor, and bath and body products by local and national artists. The space features art workshops in many techniques taught by local artistic talent. Run by an artist, One Strange Bird seeks to foster a dialogue between process and product by featuring an on-site studio where customer can see artists making works, while they shop. The space also hosts monthly art openings by underrepresented Chicago talent on the first Friday of each month. It is our hope that One Strange Bird will blur boundaries between Fine Art and Craft, art and life, and process and product by having all reside in a singular space.
