INSIDE THE WHITE CITY: ART AND ARCHITECTURE AT THE 1893 WORLD'S COLUMBIAN EXIBITION
December 2018 will mark the bicentennial of Illinois. We'll use the state's 200th anniversary to look back at one of its most momentous events: The World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. Art historian Jeff Mishur returns for this slide lecture which focuses on the history of the World's Fair, the design of the fairgrounds and on a selection of important buildings. The program will also feature a discussion of contributors such as Daniel Burnham and Louis Sullivan as well as selected artworks that were on display.
