EXHIBIT OPENS MAY 30TH
The National Public Housing Museum is pleased to announce the opening reception for our newest exhibition, History Lessons: Everyday Objects from Chicago Public Housing on May 30th.
The exhibition, which features ordinary objects from public housing residents from across the city that share with us amazing stories of personal endeavors, as well as commemorating those that were most important in shaping their lives. The objects are also described by the residents themselves, giving visitors their first-hand account of how these various items played a part in their day to day lives. The labels were created during writing workshops with Audrey Petty and Nate Marshall or during interviews with Rich Cahan.
The opening will take place on May 30th at the NPHM offices, which are located at 625 N Kingsbury St, from 5:30-7:30 PM. Refreshments and drinks will be served.
This event is wheelchair accessible. Individuals requiring Sign-Language Interpreters, Real-time captioners, or other accommodations should contact Mark Jaeschke at (773) 245-1621 or firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week in advance of the event.
