Live an artful life. Spoke has partnered with premier Chicago artists to create an unrivaled cultural experience of living alongside contemporary art.

Curated by Patti Gilford Fine Arts, 24 innovative Chicago-based artists were carefully selected to complement the architecture and culture of Spoke. Akin to living in a contemporary art gallery, the lobbies, amenity spaces, and residential corridors of each building display vibrant, diverse, and thought-provoking paintings, drawings, photography and more.

graphic identity

We commissioned Thirst, a communication design practice in Chicago, to design Spoke's identity. The graphic program responds to Spoke's location on Milwaukee Ave — the "hipster highway" — by giving the building an active city vibe.
