Open House Chicago 2019


New lighting designed by Schuler Shook illuminates the architectural details of the Newberry facade while expressing a more welcoming personality to the neighborhood.

Visit the Newberry as part of the Chicago Architecture Center's Open House Chicago 2019. While you're here, you'll experience the neo-Romanesque, Henry Ives Cobb-designed building we've occupied since 1893; see items on view from our collection; and learn about the balance between preservation and redesign on our recently renovated first floor.
