Theatre Historical Society of America, Inaugural Exhibition Coverage

As a member of the Chicago Collections, Theatre Historic Society of America loaned items from the archives to the inaugural exhibit. 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? To answer this question, Chicago Collections in collaboration with Chicago Public Library, presents its inaugural exhibition Raw Material: Uncovering Chicago’s Historical Collections, including a selection of notable archives, manuscripts, and objects pulled from over 20 archival repositories across the region. The free exhibit opens August 7, and continues through November 15, 2015, in the Special Collections Exhibition Hall, 9th Floor, at the Harold Washington Library Center, 400 S. State St. The exhibit is supported in part by an anonymous donor and the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.  Read More >
