Dear tenants of the Bridgeport Art Center:

As most of your already know, Governor Pritzker announced a “Stay At Home” order to take effect this afternoon, at 5:00pm, March 21, 2020 and is scheduled to last until April 7, 2020. As part of this order, Governor Pritzker’s order requires all non-essential business to close and employees of those business to stay home.

Due to the nature of the services we provide at BAC, we are considered an essential business and will continue to provide essential property management, storage and records storage services to BAC community and its customers.

We will remain open in a limited capacity until further notice. Our office hours will be 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday – Saturday and 9:00am -12:00pm on Sundays. BAC will do all it can to keep you informed on any new developments.

The last few weeks have been a trying time for all of us. No-one could have predicted the impact Covid-19 would have on our world or the far-reaching consequences on our everyday lives and businesses.

The economic impact of this shutdown has affected all of us. We are hopeful there will be financial support from the state and the federal government that may ease some of the challenges.

BAC has decided to waive late fees and offer flexible payment plans for those tenants that might be having difficulties paying their rent.

BAC is first and foremost a community. The artists, businesses and services that make up the BAC community will survive this. Central to our commitment to our partners is communication.

Thank you and good health to all.
The BAC Management Team.

Folks - 8A5E/Base Cafe is here to feed you! Let's promote/patronize our local businesses in these trying times ahead. Hang in there [email protected] BAC

We will be open our normal hours tomorrow. But we will only be offering carryout services.

As many of you are already aware Governor Pritzker has announced the closing of all bars and restaurants dine-in services to curb the Covid-19's spread. We are taking all necessary precautions to help with this effort.
As a small business the upcoming weeks and months won't be easy but we have faith that we will get through this difficult time together. ♥️
Thank you for your understanding and we appreciate all of your continued support.

BRIDGEPORT ART CENTER COVID-19 UPDATE - REVISED HOURS OF OPERATION AND STAFFING

The health and safety of our employees, tenants, partners, and visitors remain our highest priority. BAC is closely monitoring developments around the Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) and sharing safeguards and best practices as outlined by federal health authorities and state and local officials.

Currently, BAC is cancelling all group events through Apr 4th, 2020, including the tenant networking meeting, scheduled for this Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Effective tomorrow, Tuesday April 17, 2020 some of our staff members will be working from home and the management office hours will change slightly. Our new office hours will be 9:00am – 5pm Monday – Saturday and regular Sunday hours which are 8:00am -12pm. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 updates from the federal health authorities and state and local officials and we will reevaluate our schedule and available staff and make necessary changes later this week for the following week.

Please practice basic protective measures against the COVID-19.

Wash your hands frequently
Maintain social distancing
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Practice respiratory hygiene
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, STAY HOME and seek medical care early
Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provide

Additional precautions include increasing cleaning and sanitation and encouraging staff members who are sick to stay home. Please refer to the Chicago Department of Public Heath’s website, chicago.gov/coronavirus, for the latest local updates on the response to COVID-19

Chicago Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) information Updates

03/13/2020
www.cdc.gov

To ensure everyone’s safety we at BAC have decided to cancel the upcoming Open Studio, scheduled for Friday, March 20, 2020, due to concerns about COVID-19.

For the time being our facility will remain open for other business as usual.
Our goal is to use mitigation strategies in our community to prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 disease, such increasing the frequency of cleaning our facility, especially doorknobs, desks, handrails and elevators and asking our staff, tenants and partners not to shake hands and to stay home if they feel sick.

At this time, no BAC employees or tenants have tested positive for the virus. In the event any employee or third party tests positive for the virus, or has been directly exposed to a person who has tested positive, or has traveled to a CDC designated hot zone, the individual must be quarantined for 14 days prior to access to our facilities.

Please reference this CDC’s posting for more information:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/workplace-school-and-home-guidance.pdf

We will continue to monitor the development of this situation. Rest assured we will implement best practices to control the potential outbreak of our employees, tenants and partners at our facility.

Our priority at BAC is, and always will be, the safety of our employees, tenants, partners and visitors.

Thank you, Bridgeport Art Center Management

GRAFFITI ARTIST NEEDED - CHICAGO IL 🎥🎥🎬 Ok guys so I'm in need of some help. I'm currently renovating my workshop and making a set for my YouTube channel down there and need a SPRAY PAINT artist.

I'm looking for someone that is interested in doing it as part of a series of videos I'm putting together for the renovation. I will get you as much social media exposure as possible but will need to film the entire process in my shop. Shop is located in New Lenox IL right outside Chicago. Message me if interested. Here is the link to my channel so you can see what its all about.
