The Great Chicago Fire Murals at The Standard Club
Thank you for joining us on Thursday, March 29th for a rare opportunity to see The Great Chicago Fire, an exquisite example of Edgar Miller’s large scale mural work!
Thanks also to the generous hospitality, wine, drinks and food of The Standard Club, where Edgar Miller Legacy has been welcomed back for the second year. Its private lounge, a mid-century modern bar features four incredibly detailed, twelve-foot wide Miller murals depicting the Chicago Fire, beautifully hand carved in black linoleum.
Our honored guest, the City of Chicago's Cultural Historian, Tim Samuelson, gave a wonderful talk sharing with us all the story of Miller's work, the history of the Club, and the Great Chicago Fire.
