Adler Iannelli There's been a lot of excitement generated this week by the effort to save the Iannelli Studios in Park Ridge, Illinois. However, not many people have heard of Alfonso Iannelli, let alone know the depth and breadth of the Iannelli Studios work. One example of the Iannelli Studios work turning-up where you'd least expect it: The Adler Planetarium in Chicago. The Iannelli Studios was responsible for creating the 12 signs of the Zodiac as bronze plaques for the 1930s building (the photos of which you see at left can be purchased here). Additionally, the 8 known planets were depicted in sculptured relief as well for the lobby, encircling a statement for the building. Make plans to visit the Adler Planetarium the next time you're in Chicago to see these beautiful artistic marvels for yourself!
