Edgar Miller was a master craftsman as well as a conceptual artist, and was able to translate his ideas into nearly any medium.  During the height of his career in the 1920s and 1930s, Miller designed and executed two bohemian artist colony buildings known as Carl Street Studios and Kogen-Miller Studios.   Garnering more attention today is Miller’s Glasner Studio, one of his artistically rehabbed homes celebrated in Edgar Miller and the Handmade Home (City Files Press, 2009).  This lecture by Zac Bleicher, Executive Director of the Edgar Miller legacy, will hone in on a “best of” history of Miller’s broad and deep oeuvre and also discuss the preservation efforts to keep Miller’s incredibly unique history intact and vibrant for future generations to appreciate and learn from.  A partner program of the Terra Foundation’s Art Design Chicago; co-sponsored by Friends of Historic Second Church.  (Photograph by Alexander Vertikoff courtesy of the Edgar Miller Legacy).
