Get ready to re-imagine Chicago's architectural structures built during the Victorian Era. See how artist Ruth Sackheim uses bold color, traditional media, and digital media to transform, yet pay homage to, well-known and lesser-known sights in and near the heart of the city. Experience a modern take on Alta Vista Terrace, nicknamed the "Street of Forty Doors," and the El, which has been called both "Chicago's Eiffel Tower" and "Chicago's Railroad in the Sky." Consider how the places that transformed Chicago over one hundred years ago impact our dreams and emotions today.

“Historic Chicago Re-Imagined” is part of Chicago Artists Month 2011, the sixteenth annual celebration of Chicago’s vibrant visual art community presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture.  For more information, visit
