About this event:
WHAT: This the first of three public programs celebrating the centennial of the Arts Club of Chicago.
SO WHAT: This series is conceived by public historian Paul Durica, who will organize reenactments from the history of modernism in Chicago at past and present Arts Club location. This one will feature an exhibition of Japanese prints from Wright’s own collection, originally shown in 1917. An actor impersonating Wright will deliver his lecture “The Print and the Renaissance,” followed by a reception and concert.
NOW WHAT: Free and open to the public at the Arts Club’s original location, which is also known as the Studebaker Building. The Arts Club of Chicago now is located at 201 E. Ontario St., on the southeast corner of St. Clair and Ontario Streets. Exhibitions there are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 11am – 6pm, and Saturday 11am – 3pm.
