In 1997, David Dobie established Heaven in the Flat Iron Building in Wicker Park, Chicago. In July 2000, the gallery moved across the street to its current location at 1550 N. Milwaukee Ave. Over the past 18 years, Heaven Gallery has established itself as a launching pad for Chicago artists in all media including painting, sculpture, photography, film, and digital art. Heaven has monthly exhibitions as well as various video and film programs on a regular basis. Some of the featured artists include Marie Kennedy, Doug Lussenhop, Eric Fensier, Cat Chow, Doug Fogelson, Setphen Eichhom, Jason Lazarus, Mika Horbuchi, and many others. Early Heaven musical performances include Dark Dark Dark, Anni Rossi, and Angel Olsen. In 2011, the organization added a small vintage shop to the front of the gallery to help fund the program. Since opening the shop, our outreach has expanded to a whole new audience with hundreds of people visiting every weekend.
