Hidden in Plain Sight: Chicago’s Lakefront Masterpieces

Saturday, May 19, 2018, 2:00 p.m. Edge Theater - 5451 N. Broadway


Art in Unexpected Places: Chicago’s lakefront is lined with a vast collection of outdoor sculpture… paintings too…, yet this virtual museum of public art is virtually unknown.

Just Look Down: Maybe you’ll see a name, or some initials in a heart, but also portraits, animals, buildings and more. Millions have strolled, swam, fished and hung out, and some looked to pass the time with pen knives, screwdrivers or chisels, carving a legacy into those miles of lakefront. Chicago’s waterfront stone-carving extravaganza seems unique, a triumph of the city’s forever open and free public lakeshore…

Join us and enjoy this visual presentation, make some new discoveries, and rekindle some memories.
