Paint Out: Chinatown Gate This is on a Sunday

September 24, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Chinatown promises to be a very exciting paint out full of buildings, people and lots of color.  This is a new venue for us and we’ll be meeting at the entrance gates at 2206 S Wentworth.  The following is taken from GPS MY CITY.

Chinatown Gate, Chicago

Chinatown Gate is one the most prominent landmarks to be seen in Chicago’s Chinatown. The gate marks the entrance to the Chinatown and was installed in 1975. It was designed by architect Peter Fung based on a gate in Beijing. The hand-painted characters on the ornamental tiles at the top of the gate translate as “The world belongs to the commonwealth”, a saying dating back to the early part of the 20th century when China was transitioning into a republic.

The gate stands on South Wentworth Avenue, the main boulevard of the Chinatown. On this street you will find numerous restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, and Chinese medicine shops. In addition to the abundant Chinese restaurants in the area, there are also lots of eateries serving Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese cuisine..
