About Iannelli Studios Heritage Center
The Iannelli Studios Heritage Center is the original home and studio of the sculptor Alfonso Iannelli (1888-1965) and a place where a number of notable participants in the Chicago Renaissance worked and sometimes lived, including Edgar Miller, Bruce Goff, Barry Byrne and Roscoe Harold Zook. With widespread support from the local community and beyond, The Kalo Foundation of Park Ridge was able to raise the funds needed to acquire the property and transform it into a museum and art center.
In addition to the efforts of our many volunteers, the Center has been the beneficiary of numerous (Boy Scout) Eagle projects. We are thankful for these Eagle candidates (and their fellow scouts, mentors and leaders) who have transformed the Center in numerous ways, some visible and some hidden but important to the safety and function of the Center.
