We've got three late listings, jamming up on Thursday, December 18th, the last active day in the calendar before everything shuts down for the year-end holidays. (Not to mention Daniel Barenboim's return to Chicago for an all-Liszt recital at the Harris Theater.)
At 12:00 P.M., at the Chaddick Institute of DePaul, architectural historian and author Sally A. Kitt Chappell will lecture on Chicago's Urban Nature: The Legacy of Daniel Burnham, going up against the Art Institute's Joe Rosa at a 12:15 Landmarks Illinois lecture at the Chicago Cultural Center, Are We Ready to Landmark Goldberg Buildings?, a prelude to the upcoming Goldberg show in the Department of Architecture's new Renzo Piano Modern Wing gallery.
Starting at 5:30, with a cocktail reception for its new gallery, Archeworks will be conducting its Semester Final Critique and Review, open to the public, of this year's three student projects, including pocket parks for Little Village, the stewardship of six of Chicago's major community parks for the proposed 2016 Olympics, and a consideration of water scarcity and pollution worldwide.
At at 6:30 P.M., at Daley Bicentennial Plaza Fieldhouse, the Grant Advisory Council will be offering up Planning for the Southwest Corner of Grant Park: public input, promising to review new plans by EDAW and Adrian Smith+Gordon Gill Architecture for the sloping section of Grant Park east of Michigan and north of Roosevelt that has most recently been bisected by a ramp access point for trucks supporting construction of the new Metra 11th Street station.
