Storage Equipment for Auditorium Theatre Archive Holdings

The purchase of storage furniture for the Auditorium Theatre’s institutional archives, an action recommended in a 2018 preservation assessment. This collection of over 86 cubic feet of material encompasses performance, business, and renovation records, which are incorporated into articles and historic theatre tours. The theatre, which opened in 1889, is considered an early masterpiece of architects Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler and is a National Historic Landmark.

The Auditorium Theatre, a National Historic Landmark located in downtown Chicago, Illinois, respectfully requests $10,000 from National Endowment for the Humanities through the Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions to purchase storage equipment as we work to relocate our archival materials to a dedicated space within the theatre venue.
