Martin Luther King Jr. Slept Here
Actually, it was a couple of doors down at 1550 S. Hamlin Avenue in 1966. The original
building was demolished and the lot sat vacant for thirty years. The new building was
built to honor Dr. King and to offer low cost housing to North Lawndale families.
Art Appreciation Day
In the background is the Elmhurst Art Museum.
The museum is built around the "McCormick
House" which was designed by Mies van der Rohe. This was name "The Best Suburban Art
Museum In Chicago" by Chicago Magazine.
In the foreground is a sculpture titled "Sistine
Touch" by Bob Emser. It was on display at Navy Pier before being loaned out to the museum.

you down. In other words, keep pushin' on.
