Culture Vultures: Celebrating Chicago

From parks to books to TV, our Vultures love this town

Millennium Park

The park is so visually beautiful, and is a wonderful asset for the city. My husband and I live downtown, and we went over to the park for the Chicago Blues Fest; it was a beautiful day, and we sat on the curb, listening to the blues, and looking at the lake beyond. It was a tremendous thrill. It just filled me with a great sense of well-being. I like the area around Buckingham Fountain; we like to go there to sit on the nice benches in the shade, and read. ARC's inviting 14 artists from Paris this summer and hosting them, and while I was at the park I was thinking about how I'm so anxious to show the park to the French artists. That's a lot to say, for artists coming from Paris. But I felt very strongly about it.
