On-the-spot appraisals of Modern objects Saturday, October 28 from 10 am to Noon
If you think you possess a Modern masterpiece or want to learn more about how to identify one, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s world-famous S.R Crown Hall on the Illinois Institute of Technology’s (IIT) campus is the place to be on Saturday, October 28. The Mies van der Rohe Society at IIT welcomes David Rago and John Sollo for a special program, “Show Us Your Modernism,” providing information and on-the-spot appraisals of suspected Modern masterpieces.

This exciting program benefits the Mies van der Rohe Society’s commitment to preserving the legendary architect’s legacy and restoring his buildings on the IIT campus, a recent addition to the National Register of Historic Places.

David Rago and John Sollo are considered among the country’s foremost experts in 20th century objects. In addition to running a successful auction house, they are the authors of Collecting Modern: A Guide to Mid-Century Furniture and Ceramics and have appeared on PBS’ Antiques Roadshow. They will discuss how Sollo Rago Modern Auctions came to be, as well as the changes they've seen in the Modern market—and the Modern buyer—in taste and value. A question and answer session will be followed by an hour of appraisals, so guests are invited to bring in photos of Modern furniture, and fine and decorative arts for formal identification and valuation.

David Rago founded Rago Arts and Auction Center in Lambertville, N.J., plus two magazines on 20th century decorative arts and furnishings. His specialty is American art pottery and his expertise extends to Modern ceramics and glass, art glass (including Tiffany), arts and crafts lighting, decorative and fine arts, and furnishings. He lectures nationally and is the author of many articles and books in his field.

John Sollo began his career as a dealer in Americana. Broadening this expertise in the 1980s and 1990s, he is now, as described by Antiques and the Arts Weekly, "a premier authority in 20th century modern." He is also an author of several books on Modern design and a principal auctioneer at the Rago Arts and Auction Center.

Their depth of experience gives them the ability to help understand rarity and historical values, identify unsigned pieces, and track trends in the market.

The Mies van der Rohe Society welcomes Rago and Sollo at this exciting event in IIT’s own Modern masterpiece, Crown Hall, 3360 South State Street, Chicago. Admission is $15 ($10 for Mies Society members).

Founded in 1890, IIT (iit.edu) is a Ph.D.-granting technological university awarding degrees in the sciences, mathematics and engineering, as well as architecture, psychology, design, business and law. IIT’s inter professional, technology-focused curriculum prepares the university’s 6,200 students for leadership roles in an increasingly complex and culturally diverse global workplace. IIT students and faculty represent a wealth of intellectual capital for technology enterprise development.
