You're invited to join us as we celebrate 20 years of the Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative! Our Fall program will take place on November 21st at the DePaul Student Center and will feature the film Walls that Talk: A film by the Voices & Visions Project, which is the latest installment in our ongoing research projects regarding the Lincoln Park community. This year's film will feature local historians, architects, and Chicago residents as they reflect on three historic Lincoln Park buildings: Yondorf Hall, Lincoln Turner Hall, and the Belden Stratford Hotel. Dennis Rodkin will be our host for the evening. You may know him as the residential real estate reporter for Crain’s Chicago Business or you can also check out his "What's That Building?" segments on WBEZ. Missed our Spring program? Watch the “The Battle for Lincoln Park,” here!
With support from: Wrightwood Neighborhood Association, Old Town Triangle Association, Steppenwolf, Gold Coast Bank, Belmont Village, The Village Chicago, Lettuce Entertain You and community members like you.
About the Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative
Founded over 20 years ago, the Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative (LPCRI) is a partnership between DePaul University and the Lincoln Park organizations and businesses. The goal of the LPCRI is to collect, document, and preserve the shared history of DePaul University and the Lincoln Park community. We develop and support research, publications, exhibits, and educational programs about the neighborhood. The educational programs, which are held in the Spring and Fall, examine the diverse cultural and political issues of both Lincoln Park and city at large.
