Exhibits and Interpretation
Julia Bachrach produces exhibits and interpretive projects that engage and educate diverse audiences. She has curated traditional exhibits in venues such as the Chicago Cultural Center, City Gallery in Chicago’s Historic Water Tower, Chicago Architecture Foundation, and numerous Chicago park field houses. For example, Julia Bachrach curated (with Jo Ann Nathan) the first large scale exhibition on renowned landscape architect Jens Jensen, entitled A Force of Nature: The Life and Work of Jens Jensen.
Julia conducts research, writing, and interfaces with designers to create interpretive and way-finding signage as well commemorative boulders and plaques.
She conducts oral histories, such as a series of interviews of older Chicagoans who attended the city’s second world’s fair. Entitled A Century of Progress, this major event took place at Northerly Island and Burnham Park in 1933-34.
Julia produces a vast array of history-based digital media projects including web-sites, and audio and smart phone tours. These include an audio tour of Humboldt Park and a web site about Chicago Historic Schools.
