Chicago Rink Rats: The Golden Age of Roller Skating

Friday, July 13, 2018

New original exhibit! Take a nostalgic trip to the glory days of roller skating to learn about the "rink rats"—the regulars at the legendary skating venues with names like The Elm, Arcadia, Riverview, Lombard, The Savoy, and others in the “Golden Era” of roller skating. Hear first-person accounts from skaters and view images and eclectic artifacts, from skating jackets and gear to competition medals, posters, and memorabilia. Inspired by the book by author and skater Tom Russo.
