Families are invited to explore this landmark arts building (built by Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan, beautifully restored, and a building that Frank Lloyd Wright said was "... the greatest room for music and opera in the world- bar none.")
During the free festivities, you can enjoy dance classes from Joffrey Ballet dancers, acting lessons from Roosevelt University professionals, Arts & Crafts, a special Brownie making demonstration with one of FOX TV’s Master Chefs and lots more.
It's all free, and it's all fun!
Here's a schedule of what's going on, and a promotional video which shows some of the planning for what's going on!
