Artists have taken the salvaged items and artfully arranged them around the museum.
One thing that these photos do not capture is the scale of some of these pieces.
The people on this piece are full scale.
There were a few of these angelic women.
In the background you can see a mix of Sullivan and Art Deco. Louis Sullivan is known as one of the founders of the modern architectural movement and there are several of his pieces that have been rescued and are on display.
This is the "key" to a large collection of Sullivan objects salvaged from the Chicago Stock Exchange building which was demolished in 1972.
Above is a piece of the stair balustrade and a bronze newel post
I found this picture online that shows the pieces in context before the building was demolished.
Here some more pieces salvaged from the exterior of the building.
This round medallion is from another Sullivan project
