New Exhibit Focuses on Elevations in Chicago

DNAinfo recently ran two articles detailing an exhibit taking place during the Chicago Architecture Biennial co-run by SAIC’s Lee Bey (Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Designed Objects) and architect James Gorski. The exhibit, Elevation: The Rise of Beverly/Morgan Park, focuses on the highest elevated neighborhoods in the otherwise flat city of Chicago. Held at the Beverly Arts Center, 2407 West 111th Street, the exhibit runs through January 7.
