|Exhibition: Preserving Chicago, Making History|
|Tuesday, 29 January 2008 01:31|
February 7– May 9, 2008
The exhibition and accompanying programs will focus on preservationists’ motivations—and evaluate the consequences of their actions. A new, free exhibition, runs February 7 through May 9 at the Chicago Architecture Foundation, 224 S. Michigan Avenue. A protest sign carried by photographer and preservationist Richard Nickel inspired the exhibition’s title.
Nickel’s 1960 fight to save Adler & Sullivan’s Garrick Theater sparked the modern preservation movement. The exhibition focuses on three motivations behind the desire to preserve the built environment: to celebrate design, to foster identity, and to revitalize city life.
