Historical Information: Metropolitan Capital Bank & Trust occupies the entire North Annex of the historic Tree Studios, a workshop to many of Chicago's great artists over the past century. The recent multi-million dollar restoration has returned this property to its original glory, featuring extensive terra cotta reliefs, 18-ft. ceilings and four 12-ft. picture windows. Original period finishes, railings, bay windows and built-in cabinets decorate the Bank’s 24 additional rooms, including two conference rooms on the first floor, mezzanine offices for the Private Capital Managers that overlook the Bank's main and second floors and a grand conference room in one of the second floor Great Rooms.In addition to preserving the physical building, we intend to preserve this building’s artistic spirit through a strong tie to the art community. Metropolitan Capital Bank & Trust, in association with Nixon Art Associates, Inc., launched, "Art Works Chicago", which features rotating exhibitions of work by prominent Chicago artists displayed in the workplace setting. The first ever installment was an installation of paintings by the highly regarded Chicago artist, Vera Klement.
