  1. Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary: Faces of Eternity

    Continuing our lively exploration and use of the Mies van der Rohe-designed McCormick House from 1952, EAM is premiering an ongoing exhibition series called “In the House.” On a regular basis, artists, designers and architects will be invited to respond to the modernist structure by producing a site-specific installation in the house that takes into consideration its unique space and history. The first artist invited to participate in EAM’s new “In the House” series is Laura Davis, a Chicago-based artist whose sculpture and installations examine the intersection of craft, design and art.
