Collecting vintage photos and films that explore the culture of Chicago's neighborhoods, "Never a Lovely So Real" shows how communities throughout the city reacted to three decades of social change. The exhibition includes work from photographers who documented the clubs, art movements and culture on the South Side of city as well as images from Uptown and Wrigleyville that document the transformation of each area.
