And then a heads up on what looks to be two great August events:

Spertus Architecture - Inside and Out is the name of a tour of the Spertus Institute's spectacular new, award-winning building by Krueck & Sexton, taking place August 8th at noon, and then again September 19th at 1 p.m., and November 17 at 5:30 p.m. "This behind-the-scenes tour lets you learn about the building’s environmental sustainability, how its contemporary design found a home in South Michigan Avenue’s historic district . . . Also, discover how ideas central to Judaism’s religious and intellectual traditions are woven into the building’s design."
Since the Spertus has dramatically cut back its hours, this is a rare opportunity to see this exceptional structure. The cost is $18.00 for adults, $10.00 for students and seniors, and $8.00 for Spertus members. You can buy tickets on-line, or call 312/322.1773.
