From Millennium Park’s inception, the idea to turn the unsightly railyards into a park and tourist destination, to the construction of the “Bean” to the park we all know and love today.  Hear from those who made it happen, including stories you’ve never heard from the perspective of four individuals Ed Uhlir, Terry Guen, Christy Webber and Benet Haller. The event will consist of three parts, the first, a panel presentation and discussion with Ed, Terry, and Benet about the park, and its design, construction, and impact on the city of Chicago. Followed by a walking-tour through the park lead by our panelists. Immediately after a social will be held at (details provided below) to meet your local APA and ASLA members.
