CTPA MYTH BUSTING - Setting the Record Straight

Virtual Zoom Meeting

7:00 p.m. CST

Monday, September 26, 2022

There are tall tales about many Chicago buildings, sculptures and some events, too. Can you separate fact from fiction? Do you know the legend/folklore/bad story and the “right stuff”?

Dennis McClendon CTG will take us on a journey around Chicago to bust myths and reveal the truths. Here is just a partial list of some of the stories he will address:

Wrigley Building

Civic Opera House

Bowman & Spearman

Tall Buildings  (Wine cellar of the 95th)

What started the Great Fire?

Jeweler’s Building (Speakeasy)

Palace of Fine Arts/Museum of Science & Industry

31 South Wacker (an engagement ring?)

To you want to make sure your “favorite” tale is included? Drop him a line at dennis@chicagocarto.com, so that he might add your submission to his Power Point. 

RSVP to be sent the virtual meeting link and listen in to what should be a memorable evening!  

The program will be recorded.
