Thank you to everyone who joined us at SAH Celebrates, our annual celebration of the achievements of individuals and groups who shape the built environment and passionately advocate on behalf of historic places. The event took place at one of Chicago’s most historic cultural institutions, The Newberry, on Friday, November 3, 2023. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed socializing, food designed by Lula Café, music by DJ Onwa, and access to the exhibition, Seeing Race Before Race.
