ROCKY WIRTZ, BULLEY & ANDREWS AND TIM SAMUELSON TO BE HONOROED MARCH 19 AT LANDMARKS ILLINOIS’ LEGENDARY LANDMARKS CELEBRATION
Landmarks Illinois will mark its tenth annual Legendary
Landmarks Celebration by awarding ‘landmark’ status to three civic and
cultural leaders: Historian Tim Samuelson, Business Leader Rocky Wirtz and Construction Firm Bulley & Andrews. The awards will be given at Landmarks Illinois’ Legendary Landmarks Celebration
Thursday, March 19, 2015 at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, 120 East
Delaware Place. Cocktails begin at 5:45 p.m. followed by dinner at 7
p.m. and a live auction.
“The three honorees have made extraordinary impacts on the cultivation
and sustainability of Chicago’s architectural and historical culture,”
said Bonnie McDonald, President and CEO of Landmarks Illinois.
“Not only is Tim Samuelson a living encyclopedia of Chicago, but his
work allows for audiences to actively engage with history in new ways.
Bulley & Andrews, in its fourth generation of building, remains a
forerunner of construction innovation and Rocky Wirtz’s work in Chicago
continues to steward the preservation of vital landmark buildings.”
Founded in 1891, Bulley & Andrews spans three
centuries of building and restoring Chicago’s skyline. One of the
Midwest’s most trusted and accomplished construction firms, Bulley &
Andrews keeps its ties to tradition while utilizing cutting edge
technology to stay at the vanguard of construction innovation. Now
planning its 125th anniversary in 2016, this fourth
generation, family-owned and operated firm is led by Allan E. Bulley,
Jr. With a regional focus and national reach, Bulley & Andrews has
restored many of Illinois' most important historic landmarks including:
Robie House, the Richard H. Driehaus Museum, Ragdale, St. Columba, the
St. Charles Riverwall, the Monroe Building, and the Chicago Athletic
Association. The firm also orchestrated the move of the Harriet Rees
House, one of the largest homes ever moved in the nation.
Tim Samuelson, cultural historian for the City of
Chicago and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, has
been instrumental in celebrating and protecting Chicago’s past. His job
is that of a spokesperson, historian and storyteller, a wide-ranging
position that requires him to tell the spirit and the history of Chicago
through exhibits, public programs, and collaboration with other
cultural institutions. Samuelson is highly regarded for his stewardship
of the cultural and architectural history of the city at the Commission
on Chicago Landmarks and the Chicago Historical Society. In 2004,
Cartoonist Chris Ware and Ira Glass of “This American Life” published
“Lost Buildings,” a book and DVD based on Samuelson’s life and the
preservation of Chicago’s historic buildings.
Rocky Wirtz was named President of Wirtz Corporation
and Chairman of the Chicago Blackhawks in October 2007, following his
late father, William W. Wirtz. As President of Wirtz Corporation,
Wirtz’s role extends to a vast array of businesses, from beverage
distribution to financial services, entertainment, insurance and real
estate. Wirtz Realty is the oldest business within the Wirtz family of
companies, owning and managing properties in the Chicago area for nearly
a century, including many of the city’s most renowned buildings such as
the historic, Art Deco landmark at 333 N. Michigan Avenue. Wirtz also
continues to lead his family’s commitment to numerous civic and
charitable organizations including Chicago Blackhawks Charities.
Allan E. Bulley Jr., representing Bulley & Andrews will be
introduced at the celebration by Museum of Science and Industry
President and CEO David Mosena. Samuelson will be introduced by Principal Architect John Vinci, FAIA, and Wirtz will be introduced by Chicago’s 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly.
WTTW television journalist and Chicago historian Geoffrey Baer will serve as Master of Ceremonies. Event Co-Chairs are Joseph Antunovich, AIA, Richard H. Driehaus, Leslie Hindman and Lois Weisberg. Celebration Host Committee Chair is Sandra Rand. Celebration committee members include, Madeline Gelis, Shelley Gorson, Krista Gnatt, Frieda Ireland, Karen Prieur, Janet Rotner and Martin V. Sinclair, Jr.
Proceeds from the event will in part benefit Landmarks Illinois’
Preservation Heritage Grant Fund which provides essential financial
assistance for the revitalization of historically and architecturally
significant properties statewide. This investment, in turn, encourages
economic growth, creates jobs, promotes tourism and safeguards a sense
of place, identity and quality of life for generations to come.
