Arup's Luebkeman, Fresh again, Reversed Images, and Henry Cisneros - still MORE September events

Just when we think I've finally put the September calendar to bed, they pull me back in!

Here's still another set of great events we've just added to the September calendar. On Monday, the 21st, Chris Luebkeman, ARUP's Director for Global Foresight, lectures at Fullerton Hall at the Art Institute, and there's an encore showing of the documentary Fresh at Archeworks on Tuesday the 22nd. On Thursday, the 24th, there's an opening reception and lecture by Olivo Barbieri for Reversed Images: Representations of Shanghai and its Contemporary Material Culture, at the Columbia College Museum of Contemporary Photography, and on Friday, the 25th Henry Cisneros appears at the Hull House Museum to discuss his new book, From Despair to Hope: Hope VI and the New Promise of Public Housing in America's Cities, for the National Public Housing Museum.

This was already a week absolutely crammed with great events. Also on Friday, the 25th, Preservation Chicago holds is Autumn benefit in the spectacular Elks National Veterans Memorial, and the next night, the 26th, the centennial of Unity Temple is celebrated with a gala that concludes with the premiere of composer Peter Lieberson's The Coming of Light. On Sunday, there's a panel discussion, The Future of Glessner House and the Prairie Avenue district, at the Prairie Avenue Gallery in the historic Keith House, where a great exhibition of concepts for temporary installations at Glessner House and adjacent sites by second years Master of Architecture students at the School of the Art Institute runs only through September 27th. Also at Glessner House on Wednesday the 23rd there'll be a panel remembering the great Leon Despres.

Both the American Planning Association and AIA Women's Leadership Summit are in town for multi-day conferences, and SEAOI has an an-day seminar on structural glass on Monday.

But wait: there's more! Nearly two dozen events just this week, and no I'm not putting links in this post - football is on. But you can check it all out - links, in abundance - here.
