"The exhibit is magic," said Betsy Foxwell, president of the Kalo Foundation which saved the studio from demolition last year.  The organization in the midst of fundraising campaign aimed at restoring the historic site. Plans call for a gathering place for classes, gallery exhibits, art heritage tours, a gift shop and more—as well as a magnet that draws visitors from all over the world to learn about Park Ridge's art colony legacy, especially this place at the corner of Elm and Northwest Highway where American Modernism put down its roots and influenced the world for 45 years. 

Show hours are:  1 to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, Feb. 21-24, Feb. 28-March 2, and March 7-9; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays, Feb. 25-26 and March 3-4. An artists’ reception is planned for 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26. Admission is free. Younger children must be accompanied by an adult.Add 1—Kalo exhibit at Iannelli Studios Heritage Center
