History: Sector 2337 began as The Green Lantern Gallery and 

History: Sector 2337 began as The Green Lantern Gallery and Press, an apartment gallery and paper back press in 2005. At the time it was located in Wicker Park. It closed in 2010, re-opened briefly on Chicago Ave for about six months. Salon style public programs continued at the original loft apartment from 2011-2013. In 2014, it reopened in Logan Square under the new name, Sector 2337, where it operates as a bookstore, gallery, and performance space. Here, The Green Lantern Press continues to produce nonprofit exhibitions and books.

Mission: Sector 2337 is a storefront gallery and bookstore opening 

Mission: Sector 2337 is a storefront gallery and bookstore opening this October at 2337 N Milwaukee Avenue. Functioning as Head Quarters for The Green Lantern Press, Sector 2337 hosts three exhibitions a year, maintains a vibrant schedule of public programs, as well as a niche on-line bookstore and an in-store bookshelf specializing in contemporary art, poetry, theory, and independent press titles. By marrying these threads — contemporary exhibitions, readings, performances, poetry, and printed matter — we continue the spirit of The Green Lantern Press, making community, culture, and discourse easily accessible to Chicago.

Our Selection of Printed Matter: Sector 2337 features a collection 

Our Selection of Printed Matter: Sector 2337 features a collection of artist books, poetry, art, theory, and independent press titles personally selected by one of our members, artists, residents, or readers. By providing these books in-house and on-line, we hope to offer additional literary and philosophical context to the physical experience of our gallery. We hearken after Printed Matter (New York), Castillo/Corrales (Paris), and Open Books (Seattle). Where those three bookstores intersect, you find us.
