How much time should I expect the tour to take?

Tours last approximately one hour.

How long are the private walking tours?

Walking tours cover a distance of approximately one mile, round trip, depending on the sites included. Each private tour can be customized to include the sites of most interest to your group.

Will we have access to Rebuild’s archival collections?

We are excited to be in the process of making our archival collections much more accessible after their move to their new home at the Stony Island Arts Bank. Please note that reading room access to the Johnson Publishing Library and Glass Lantern Slide Collection requires a free library orientation. Orientation sessions last approximately 20 minutes and are held Tuesday – Saturday at 2:00 PM.

How do I propose a project using the collections as a resource?

We are currently developing a new residency program and inviting artistic and scholarly proposals for engaging the collections.
