Program Description

Event Details

Author, artist, and historian Krista August talks about the transformation of the city of Chicago. Over a period of just sixty years, a frontier land of sand dunes and swamp was re-imagined into a modern, cutting-edge metropolis, and became the center of the world for six months in 1893! Chicago's total transformation is examined in terms of remarkable ideas that were realized, and in spite of obstacles and setbacks along the way.
