Remembering Pilgrim Baptist Church

By Rachelle Bowden in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 1, 2006 11:04PM


Tomorrow night at 6pm, the Chicago Architecture Foundation is hosting a discussion on the lost Chicago landmark, Pilgrim Baptist Church, at the ArchiCenter in the Santa Fe Building (224 S. Michigan Ave.). The discussion is focusing on both the architectural and the historical significance of the church as well as efforts to rebuild.

John Vinci of Vinci/Hamp Architects assisted with the restoration of Pilgrim Baptist in 1986 and will be leading other experts in a discussion about the loss of the landmark.

The admission is free, although you're encouraged to make a donation to help rebuild Pilgrim Baptist Church. Also, pre-registration is requested - 312.922.3432 X 225 or
