The Many Dimensions of Chicago

THIS LECTURE WILL BE LIVE STREAMED

This presentation by Susan D. Turner, a Canadian architect and resident of downtown Chicago for the last 12 years, will cover several storylines of Chicago. Its history will be outlined, touching on its founding, the great fire, the Chicago River, the Columbia Exhibition and Burnam’s plan. With a virtual walking tour down Dearborn Street, you will experience the development of skyscraper construction. The Dearborn Street walk will, also, show you great works of art: Picasso, Miro, Calder, Chagall, and Tiffany.

Of course, you will want to see some of the tourist attractions: the Theatre District, Marshall Fields and the Mag(nificent) Mile, Jeweler’s Row, the Art Institute, Millennium Park/Grant Park, the Museum Campus, and glimpses of many public art pieces. Between attractions, Susan will tell you about Chicago Deep Dish Pizza, how the Windy City got its nickname, and factoids about the many inventions that came out of Chicago.

Presenter Susan Turner is not a certified tour guide, but her research and love of Chicago more than make up for it! She wonders how to show us a bit of Chicago virtually in 60 minutes when it usually takes ten days to accomplish it in person.

Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the virtual tour will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the event.
