Evenings for Educators


Our first Evenings for Educators session covers the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. This event features a lecture given by the Trust’s Curator and Director of Interpretation Sarah Holian, who will discuss the enduring architectural legacy of Burnham and Root, the World’s Fair, and the Rookery. Included in this event is an in-depth tour of the Rookery Light Court, a behind-the-scenes look at the Burnham Library, and a hands-on workshop featuring design thinking and Chicago’s architectural history. Educators are encouraged to arrive between 5 and 5:30 pm to enjoy refreshments, mingle, and hear a brief presentation by our President & CEO Celeste Adams about our new Learning Center.
