HISTORY COMING HOME
Here “home” is a walk-in model of an apartment from the projects. Preview it now before Chicago’s National Public Housing Museum opens in 2012.
Through 4/15 A spate of game changers and culture shapers, from the Chicago pianist Reginald Robinson to Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor, grew up in public housing—but plenty of folks have never stepped foot inside the projects. History Coming Home collects oral histories, artifacts, and photos of 20th-century tenants in a 20-by-20-foot walk-in diorama of a 1950s-era public-housing apartment—a preview of Chicago’s National Public Housing Museum, slated to open in the former Jane Addams Homes in 2012.
Mon–Thu 8–7, Fri 8–6, Sat 9–6, Sun 10–6; Jan 1, 17: 10–4. 72 E Randolph. 312-744-2400.
