Garfield Conservatory centennial

The Garfield Park Conservatory celebrated its centennial Sunday — and the commemoration continues with a neighborhood history project and exhibit which runs through May.  The Conserve-A-Story” exhibit in the Conservatory’s community room opened last week and features tape recordings and photos and autobriographical objects from West Side residents.  There’s an audio recording “story booth” onsite, and a series of associated activities.  The Conservatory is also holding its annual urban gardening festival on Saturday, April 26.

 Meanwhile an exhibit of photos inspired by the new book on Garfield Conservatory and the West Side, “Inspired By Nature,” runs through June 6 at the Chicago Architecture Foundation, 224 S. Michigan.  The two authors of the book will be featured at CAF luncheon lectures next month — Park District historian Julia Bachrach on May 7, and landscape historian Jo Ann Nathan on May 21.
