13FreedomCtr1The Freedom Center in Schaumburg is a spacious retirement home with waterfalls, lagoons, a large auditorium and exceptionally imaginative event planners.  They came up with the idea of holding a commemoration of the 1893 World’s Fair.  Being an architecture buff myself, I lit up when I heard about this theme. I arrived early and before settling down to draw, I had a lively conversation with the two amateur historians who gave the presentation/slide show in the auditorium about the world’s fair.  Thank you, Rosemary!

(One of these days I’ll have to finish Erik Larson’s  “The Devil in the White City,” which was a major topic of conversation among these interesting people at the Freedom Center.)———————————————-
