Saturday morning, February 20th, the Great Lakes Chapter of the Association for Preservation Technology will be offering a Hands-on Plaster Workshop. On Saturday night, February 27th, the Hyde Park Historical Society will be presenting its 2010 Marian and Leon Depres Preservation Awards at its annual dinner, And on Tuesday morning, February 23rd, Crain's Chicago Business will be offering a forum with Steven D.

David Byrne is a big Frank Lloyd Wright fan. Last time he had a concert in town, he biked out to Oak Lawn, took pictures, and posted them on his journal. That's OK, but I figured that he was blissfully unaware of the greater treasures to be found right in the Loop.
