The Black Couch

The Black Couch is a working studio and art gallery in Hermosa. We are a collective of artists and musicians whose mission is to encourage positive community involvement through art and music.

We aim to establish ourselves as a place for collaboration, artistic growth and as a space where people of all ages and skill levels can get in touch with their inner creative potential.

Donations

We have been raising money for great causes through artwork donations from members of our family of artists for the last seven years. 

In 2016, we raised over $8,000 for different charitable organizations at fundraisers and benefits across the Chicagoland area.

Each month, we highlight a different charitable organization and auction off a piece of artwork to benefit their cause. Organization: Through Your Windows
