4_newarch

City Museum has captured the swansong of the Chicago School of Architecture in its final terra cotta ornament. This exhibit showcases original architectural pieces from buildings of Louis Sullivan, considered the father of modern architecture, and George Grant Elmslie, who was Sullivan’s chief draftsman for nearly twenty years and later an important architect in his own right.

This permanent exhibit is located on the third floor in Architectural Museum. Admission is free with City Museum admission.
