Classicizing Chicago

Photo description

From the late 1800s, Chicagoans from all walks of life and with widely varying measures of familiarity with the classical sources have found elements of the ancient past useful for making meaningful contributions to their own struggles and ventures. The Classicizing Chicago Project is building a digital archive of examples of this cultural mingling across time and space.
