Darcy Evon, historian for Kalo Foundation, will discuss how the Arts & Crafts Movement led to the unprecedented commercialization and the empowerment of thousands of women and immigrants, who began to pursue new careers in design and handicraft, including the Kalo Shop in Park Ridge. They designed exquisite, original pieces of metalwork and jewelry by hand, starting with basic raw materials.
