Kalo The group behind the recent effort to save the Iannelli Studios in Park Ridge, Illinois has a connection to a rich artistic heritage itself. The Kalo Foundation of Park Ridge was established in 2006 as a nonprofit organization and dedicated itself to preserving the rich artistic legacy of the city through education, advocacy, and preservation, as well as promoting the arts & crafts as an integral part of our modern lives.

The name derives itself from The Kalo Arts Crafts Community, an early 20th century Arts & Crafts colony located at 322 Grant Place in Park Ridge. Established as a “school within a workshop,” the facility trained men and women artisans, while producing hand wrought sterling silver, metalware, jewelry and craft items that were sold in the Kalo Shop.
