For nearly half a century, artist Alfonso Iannelli, based in Park Ridge, led a remarkable movement to transform the way American art was viewed. Chicagoans know some of his iconic work – the sculpted Rock of Gibraltar on the Prudential Building, the signs of the Zodiac at the Adler Planetarium, the distinctive Art Deco décor of the landmark Pickwick Theatre in Park Ridge. For the 125th anniversary of Iannelli’s birth, David Jameson of Chicago’s ArchiTech Gallery authored the first comprehensive Iannelli biography, "Alfonso Iannelli: Modern by Design," Iannelli was a painter, sculptor and designer, working with acoustics and industrial product development in addition to various collaborations with Frank Lloyd Wright, John Lloyd Wright, Barry Byrne, Edgar Miller and Bruce Goff. His wife, Margaret Spaulding Iannelli, also contributed designs, especially fashions and children’s textbook illustrations during her career. A rare chance to see the book, see the studios and see the original art.
