Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention Curator's Talk Friday, Lost Panoramas Tuesday, SAH's Chicago Cultural Icons on the 12th

This Friday, November 4th, from 12:00 to 12:45 curator Alison Fisher will be leading a guided tour of the Art Institute's spectacular exhibition, Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention.  It's free with museum admission.

Another beautiful exhibition that was at the Peggy Notebaert last year, The Lost Panoramas: A Snapshot into Chicago's Past, is now a book, The Lost Panoramas: When Chicago Changed Its River - and the Land Beyond, including the best of 22,000 photos taken in 1894 to document the massive public works project that reversed the flow of the Chicago.  Next Tuesday, November 8th, the Chicago Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians will be hosting a reception and book signing at AIA Chicago, with a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m., and program at 6:00.

The following Saturday, the 12th, at the Casino Club, the SAH will be holding a Gala Benefit Reception Honoring Chicago's Cultural Icons, John Vinci, Mary Zimmerman and Sophia Siskel, supporting the society's varied educational initiatives.

You can check out the details on these three newly-added events - and more than fifty total -on the November Chicago Architectural Calendar.
