Archaeological finds from the Charnley-Persky House, a Louis Sullivan/Frank Lloyd Wright structure, reveal the intricacies of life in Gilded Age Chicago. Rebecca Graff, professor of anthropology at Lake Forest College, and Pauline Saliga, executive director of the Society of Architectural Historians, discuss what the excavation at the house tells us about this forgotten past.
Chicago's Architectural Past: NOW discovers how Chicago’s past architectural stories are being shared with today’s technology. Presented by Digital Chicago fellows from Lake Forest College, each talk delves into a range of topics including 360° photography of sacred spaces, family home design during WWII, and a city-based archeological dig. The event begins at 6:00 pm with a reception with cash bar, followed by a lecture at 6:30 with Q&A.
