How You Can Help

You’re outraged that Goldberg’s Modern masterpiece is needlessly threatened with demolition by Northwestern University and you want to do something to Save Prentice? Here’s how you can help:
  1. Sign the Petition to Save Prentice. The Save Prentice Coalition created a petition on asking the City to officially designate Prentice Women’s Hospital as a local landmark. This will provide the protection necessary to prevent demolition. Every signature goes to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Alderman Brendan Reilly. Let them know you think Prentice is worth saving!
  2. Ask your friends to sign the petition. The more signatures we have, the more effective we are! Send them to this Chicago Modern website (, or send them the link to the petition (
  3. Friend us on Facebook ( And let your friends know that they should friend us too.
  4. Follow us on Twitter @saveprentice. Retweet our posts using the hashtags #saveprentice and #modernism
  5. Show Prentice Some Love. Make a Valentine for Prentice to show how much you care, and you could win some incredible Goldberg-themed prizes.
  6. Mark your calendars to attend events in the “Chicago Modern: More than Mies” series this spring. We have an amazing array of tours, lectures and events on Chicago’s Modern architecture and its place in the world. Get yourself a copy of the Chicago Modern: More than Mies Calendar now.
Thank you for support! Every action you take helps our cause.
