Base Line is the premiere arts, food, and music indoor holiday market underneath the Argyle Red line L train station showcasing the diversity and vibrancy of Chicago’s Uptown community.
This event is organized by a collective of 2nd generation Asian Americans and children of refugees, building from our families’ legacies of cultivating a new home and dynamic community in the northside of Chicago since the late 1970s. (Collaboration between Axis Lab and Nuky Pham)As Chicago continually revitalizes and transforms, Argyle’s Shared Street project presents an opportunity for new growth and development. Base Line arises as a movement to highlight community voices through socially conscious events to promote sustainable and locally based economic and social development.***With support from the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), Uptown United, and Alderman Harry Osterman of the 48th Ward.
