Friday at the University of Chicago, Chaos Manor director Chris McElroen, Chaos Manor photographer (and Chicago resident) Kate Joyce, and I spent the afternoon with Bill Michel, founding executive director of the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, which will have its Grand Opening next fall.  The director of the University of Chicago’s theater department, Heidi Coleman, joined us after a thorough tour of the building.  The interdisciplinary possibilities for the 180,000-square-foot Logan Center are wonderfully evoked in the design by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects.  You can already see that the natural light will be extraordinary inside the building and reflecting off its various exterior services.  It reflects the dynamic instincts of David Logan and his family.

Chris will take residence in Chicago this winter to direct the first-ever adaptation of Ralph Ellison’s novel, Invisible Man, at the University of Chicago’s Court Theater.

Below are a couple of glimpses of our tour, courtesy of Kate:
