Richard Cahan and Michael Williams, co-authors, will present a lecture on their recently published book,Edgar Miller and the Handmade Home: Chicago's Forgotten Renaissance Man. The book reveals Miller's accomplishments and his mastery of some two dozen crafts including painting, metal smith, stained glass, carpentry, and just so much more. The photographs are gorgeous, as they need to be in order to do justice to the color, variety and texture of Miller's work in every medium. Everyone will be astonished by the warmth and variety of Miller's creations.
This is a great opportunity for anyone that is interested in architecture, art, Chicago, and anyone who cares about true craftsmanship. The book has been garnering media and impressive reviews on NPR, WTTW, and is available for sale at amazon.com.
The lecture will be held April 14 at the historic Billboard Factory located at 4025 North Ravenswood (very easy to locate!), which is an amazing space itself. Hayes Properties has renovated the previous factory to a three-storied venue, which is available for private functions and suitable for grand scale events and intimate gatherings with panoramic views of the Ravenswood Corridor and beyond.
