SAH Seeks Architectural Objects and Experiences for the SAH Celebrates Silent Auction

by SAH News | Sep 16, 2021
The Society of Architectural Historians seeks architectural objects and experiences for the SAH Celebrates silent auction. On Friday, November 5, SAH will honor the team behind one of Chicago’s most ambitious projects, the historic rehabilitation of the long-vacant, 2.8 million-square-foot Post Office, which has been brought back to life as a hub for business and commerce. SAH will present the auction virtually and at the in-person event happening at the Old Post Office.

Contributing to the silent auction is one way to support SAH if you are unable to attend SAH Celebrates. Auction proceeds help fund SAH's educational programs and publications, such as the award-winning Buildings of the United States book series and SAH Archipedia, the Society’s open-access encyclopedia of the built environment of the United States, and the restoration and maintenance of the Charnley-Persky House (1891–92). Designed by Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright, the National Historic Landmark house serves as the SAH's international headquarters.

Past auction items include private tours, original drawings and photographs, book packages, and other objects and experiences of interest to the architecture and design community.

To donate to the SAH Celebrates silent auction, please complete the donation form and return it by October 15, 2021, for inclusion in the program book. Thank you for your generosity and support.
