Where Past Meets Present

Statues in the Tallman House

Uncovering Tallman’s Treasures

Have you ever been on a tour of the Lincoln-Tallman House and wondered about the art hanging on the walls? Are they originals? What stories do they tell?

Walk the halls with a glass of wine and hear all the answers to these questions with Art History professor Mark Pohlad, PhD. Pohlad teaches Art History at DePaul University in Chicago, where his courses include American art history, the History of Design, and classes on topics such as Abraham Lincoln and Chicago architecture.
