Open House Chicago was back for 2021, and the Jo was open for in-person site visits on October 16th. The beloved architecture festival hosted by the Chicago Architecture Center included both online and outdoor events that showcased the fascinating history, architecture, and culture of the city’s diverse neighborhoods. 

Josephinum was thrilled to be a part of Open House Chicago for the fourth year in a row.  We welcomed over 150 visitors to see our building and campus.
