Glass Lantern Slide Nights


In this monthly series, friends of Rebuild Foundation have been invited to explore and activate Rebuild Foundation’s glass lantern slide collection as historians, scholars, and artists. Open mic style! The Stony Island Arts Bank is home to more than 60,000 glass lantern slides acquired from the Department of Art History at the University of Chicago. They cover art and architectural history from the Paleolithic period to the Modern era, and became obsolete when scholars transitioned to 35mm slides and, eventually, digital projections.
