Yikes! Venice Biennale, 2016 and Northerly Island - Still another four events added to March calendar

Yeah, as if what we had for the balance of the month wasn't already enough. There's the New Yorker's Paul Goldberger talking about Frank Lloyd Wright at Unity Temple this Thursday, Larry Beasley on the The Dream for True Urbanism in the Middle East: Recent Planning and Development in Abu Dhabi at CAF on Tuesday, where Jeff Renterghem of Pappageorge/Haymes discusses Museum Park and Central Station lunchtime on Wednesday, with Mies fashion show birthday party at Crown Hall that same evening and the Chicago Modernism Show and Sale this weekend.

Now we've added FOUR - count 'em - FOUR more events to what should be the waning days of the March calendar. On Monday, at Glessner House, a panel moderated by Vincent Michael for the Western Great Lakes Chapter, Association for Preservation Technology takes on Authenticity and How it Shapes Historic Preservation. On Thursday, Aaron Levy and The Architect's Paper founder and editor William Menking give us We, the Unsigned: Dispatches from the U.S. Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, at the Graham Foundation. On Monday, March 30th, author Phyllis Ross adds another lecture on American modernist furniture and industrial designer Gilbert Rohde for the Architecture and Design Society of the Art Institute, and on Tuesday, March 31st, the Grant Park Advisory Council will offer a presentation on the impact of the 2016 Olympics on Grant Park and Northerly Island.

Thanks for the updates Lynn. I'm especially concerned with the impact of the 2016 Games, I'll try hard to make this particular one.
