During the offseason, Capt. Mike created this fun, educational, and eco-friendly project. Part paper craft with a hint of origami and a little bit of puzzle, this unique, three-dimensional model is an engaging activity for anyone interested in Chicago's history, historic preservation, model building, crafting, creative play, etc.
BUILD CHICAGO W/PAPER: Four Mile Crib & Lighthouse! is designed to raise awareness about historic Chicago buildings in danger of being lost forever. We chose Four Mile Crib as our first model because of the important role it played in Chicago's history, because it was featured by Preservation Chicago in its 2017 Most Endangered list, and because we love sailing by this ever-present building on the horizon of Lake Michigan.
We are preparing to launch this project very soon. Interested? Visit our Kickstarter preview page and sign up for alerts when we go live. Please help us get the word out by Following, Liking, and Sharing our project.
