My ear to the ground South Loop informant Eve tells me that none of us should miss this terrific panel at the Spertus Institute tonight, yes, TONIGHT.
Wednesday, November 19, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
In the interest of expediency I've copied the announcement from the Grant Park Conservancy, as follows:
What would Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett think? How far have we come and where are we going? A distinguished panel of experts will examine these questions in a discussion about the history, present and future of Grant Park along with Monroe Harbor, the Plan's formal "front door.” This program is part of a series of discussions over the next year that will focus on Grant Park and the Plan of Chicago.
The panel, moderated by Bob O’Neill, President of the Grant Park Conservancy and Advisory Council, includes Geoffrey Baer, WTTW, Gordon Gill, AIA, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, Linda Keane, AIA ,School of the Art Institute, John McCarron, Lawrence Okrent, Okrent Associates, Inc. Mark Sexton, Krueck + Sexton Architects, Dr. Carl Smith, Northwestern University and Dr. Howard Sulkin, Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies.
The Spertus itself is a marvel you'll agree and a noteworthy addition to the South Michigan Avenue landscape.
