The Society of Architectural Historians invites you to celebrate the stewardship of the Charnley-Persky House (1891–1892), designed by Louis Sullivan with assistance from Frank Lloyd Wright. This year marks the 130th anniversary of the house and the 50th anniversary of its designation as a Chicago Landmark. Join us as we recognize some of the stewards and architects who have cared for this architectural treasure. The awards presentation will include a remembrance of Pauline Saliga, who recently passed away and led SAH and the Charnley-Persky House for 27 years as executive director.
Proceeds from SAH Celebrates support the ongoing care and maintenance of the Charnley-Persky House, which serves the international headquarters of the Society of Architectural Historians and is open to the public for tours throughout the year. SAH Celebrates proceeds also benefit SAH’s educational programs and publications, including SAH Archipedia and Buildings of the United States.
