The Library is honored to be one of over 200 partners across the greater Chicagoland area that have come together to celebrate the 100th anniversary of architect Daniel Burnham's 1909 Plan of Chicago. From July 1 through October 31, the Library will be hosting the exhibit "Make Big Plans: Daniel Burnham's Vision of an American Metropolis" as well as several programs related to the centennial celebration and the exhibit.
We were also chosen as one of four libraries to host three special public events for the Burnham Plan Centennial including a visit on August 9 by Carl Smith, author of The Plan of Chicago: Daniel Burnham and the Remaking of the American City.
The Library has another connection to the Burnham Plan Centennial. Tom Gray, son of long-time Friends of the Library volunteer Margaret Gray, designed a film about Chicago that will be projected in a pavilion to be constructed in Millennium Park. Gray is a graphic artist who designs video projections for theater productions. He was interviewed on Wednesday, June 24, on Channel 11 about his work on this project.
