Last-minute hits: the Windy City » Louis Sullivan’s Idea at the Chicago Cultural Center.

Recommended to me by a friend. I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t know who Louis Sullivan was a few weeks ago – I’ll blame the winter weather (again!) for the fact that I haven’t been on one of the architecture-themed boat cruises. Anyway, fabulous exhibit with a model of the Chicago Stock Exchange and an interesting panel on Sullivan’s youthful ambition contrasted with his depression and alcoholism late in life.
