619 S. Wabash Ave. First Floor  

Coming this 2016-2017 academic year, ShopColumbia will be moving to a larger retail storefront at 619 S Wabash Avenue, previously occupied by the Averill and Bernard Leviton Gallery. The 619 S Wabash space will blend the fine art and design focus embodied by the Leviton Gallery with ShopColumbia's learning laboratory model. In addition to showcasing larger collections by individual artists, ShopColumbia's artist representation will expand to increase alumni outreach and introduce Columbia faculty and staff into the store to serve as professional examples to Columbia students. Until the remodeling is complete, ShopColumbia will be recruiting new artists  and representing artists at pop-ups at EXPO Chicago, Columbia weekend and the annual Holiday Market.
