Everyone on the “Sullivan at 150” committee was very pleased with the website preview this morning. Congratulations. Thanks for working so hard to get it up and running for me.
In 2006, the Chicago History Museum led a six-week series of public programs to mark the 150th anniversary of Louis Sullivan’s birth. The culminating event was the Louis Sullivan at 150 International Symposium, held at the Museum.
The website found it’s beginnings as a short-duration promotional website used to generate buzz about the forthcoming Louis Sullivan at 150 celebration. After the anniversary ended, the website has remained online to serve as a record of the sesquicentennial event and provides an extensive overview of Louis Sullivan’s life and career.
The project followed strict guidelines, but in doing so we were able to create a website that flourished and branched out from one organization to others – each involved in the project. To help facilitate with updates and changing content we developed online forms for the various museums and foundations involved.
