About Park Ridge
Park Ridge Architecture
The Pickwick Theatre, built in 1928, portrays Art Deco design. It acts as a movie theater and setting for plays and concerts. The main auditorium theater is still intact in its original state, giving visitors a view into what Art Deco truly looks like.
There are a group of eight brick cottages built in the early 1900s buildings that used to house the Illinois Industrial School for Girls. Prominent architects Holabird and Roche built six of those buildings.
Built in 1835, the Eicher house was home to Henri Eicher, a silversmith and foreman from Switzerland. The house is two stories and features a front gable, enclosed porch, and two outbuildings—a workshop barn and a chicken coop.
Park Ridge Notable Artists
Some of the most influential artists in America made Park Ridge their oasis. Frederick Richardson, an instructor at the Art Institute moved there in 1897. The Kalo Arts Craft Community was established by Clara Barck Welles. She hired a group of skilled women to be designers and immigrant men to be silversmiths. One of those silversmiths was Grant Wood, who is known for the classic Midwest painting titled “American Gothic”, which depicts a colonial dressed woman alongside a man holding a pitchfork.
Alfonso Iannelli, one of the most innovative sculptors of the 20th century, moved to Park Ridge to help Frank Lloyd Wright design the Midway Gardens—an entertainment facility with restaurants, saloons, cigar and newspaper stands, and arcades. Unfortunately, only fifteen years after its opening, the concert garden was demolished in 1929. Iannelli’s statues and sculptures are what brought him to fame.
