This section of the Idea Wall deals with anything of a historic nature, from local interest to national to interntional. Sometimes it is not necessarily the framing that makes the finished piece so interesting as the synergy that occurs when an interesting artifact is showcased in a unique manner. That is, the object is interesting unframed, in its own right. To add a frame to it or showcase it in a unique and visually interesting manner creates something unique.

Chicago is a city loaded with history of local and national importance. Some of the items shown here will reflect that. Other items may be totally unrelated, but the way we framed them helped to preserve them and make them available for frequent viewing.
