Daniel Burnham's and Edward Bennett's Plan of Chicago and Grant Park: 100 years later

Grant Park Conservancy

What would Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett think? How far have we come and where are we going? A distinguished panel of experts will examine these questions in a discussion about the history, present and future of Grant Park along with Monroe Harbor, the Plan's formal "front door.” This program is part of a series of discussions over the next year that will focus on Grant Park and the Plan of Chicago.
