'Turn of Century Home' at Renaissance Society
More than 100 drawings, plans, elevations, models and photographs of houses fill the floors, walls and rafters of the Bergman Gallery in the Renaissance Society's current exhibition, "Turn of the Century Home," on view through Sunday, Feb. 27. A blueprint of current architectural home styles, the show explores recent approaches to single-family homes and their relationship to designs from the turn of the 20th century.
The exhibition includes an educational lecture series at 6 p.m. on Wednesday nights in February at the Graham Foundation, 4 W. Burton Place on the near North Side. A reception will precede each lecture at 5:30 p.m. Architects Margaret McCurry and James Nagle will speak on Feb. 9, Tannys Langdon and Joseph Valerio on Feb. 16, and Stanley Tigerman and Douglas Garofalo on Feb. 23. Admission to each lecture is $5; Renaissance Society members and Graham Foundation members will be admitted free.
The Renaissance Society is located in Bergman Gallery, Cobb 418. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call 702-8670.
