Chicago Craftsmen and Second Presbyterian

Presentation by: William Tyre, Executive Director and Curator of Glessner House Museum
This program will begin with a PowerPoint presentation discussing the team that Shaw assembled for the commission he received to rebuild the sanctuary of the church after a fire in 1900, and their work at the church. Following the presentation, Tyre will lead attendees through the sanctuary pointing out significant artistic features by the team. This special lecture and tour is being presented as a partner program with Art Design Chicago, a citywide celebration of the city's art and design legacy spearheaded by the Terra Foundation.
