Chicago Collections will hold its first public exhibition at Chicago Public Library's Harold Washington Library Center. Our three month exhibition will highlight notable archives, manuscripts, and objects from our members' collections. We are excited to celebrate our collaboration with the Chicago community as Chicago Collections continues to grow.
About the Exhibit
Where: Chicago Public Library's Harold Washington Library Center,
Special Collections Exhibit Hall, 9th Floor, 400 S. State Street
What: The stories Chicagoans tell about themselves and their history are as diverse and dynamic as the city itself. But where do they find the resources and evidence to bring those stories to life? Raw Material: Uncovering Chicago's Historical Collections answers this question using a rich display of personal, cultural, and historical artifacts including photographs, letters, diaries, and other diverse items that tell stories linking Chicago’s past to the intimate, personal experiences of life in our city.
This free exhibit opens August 7, and continues through November 15, 2015. It will be accompanied by multiple lectures, artist talks, and educational projects. Stay tuned for more details.
