Open House Chicago
About The Event
The Anti-Cruelty Society is excited to announce our participation in the Chicago Architecture Center’s Open House Chicago (OHC)! This free Chicago architecture festival gives attendees a behind-the-scenes look at more than 350 of the city’s great spaces, and now includes The Anti-Cruelty Society.
Founded in 1899 by Rose Fay Thomas, and we celebrate our 120th anniversary this year as Chicago’s oldest animal welfare organization. In 1936, notable architect Leon Stanhope designed our Marion and Horace E. McConnell Memorial Building in Art Deco style, visible on W. Grand Ave. In 1979, renowned architect Stanley Tigerman designed our 510 N. LaSalle St. Adoption Center in Art Moderne style.
Join The Anti-Cruelty and the Chicago Architecture Center as we welcome Open House Chicago guests on Saturday-Sunday, October 19-20 from 12:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. Participants can explore our 510 N. LaSalle St. Adoption Center which includes our courtyard and adoptable pets!
