Vertical Gallery is committed to exhibiting and promoting urban, contemporary and street art. Established in 2013 in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village neighborhood, the gallery focuses on work influenced by urban environments, street art, pop culture, graphic design and illustration. We are working to bring this art form to a broader audience and eliminate the barriers that exist between traditional institutions, contemporary galleries, art collectors and casual viewers.

New monthly exhibits highlight local, national and international artists. You may view and purchase past and current work either in the gallery space or online. Vertical Gallery also consults on creating new collections, corporate collections, and secondary market
