ClassGraphic

The 1920s was an exciting and iconic decade in Chicago’s history. In the post-war era, the city’s people looked to the future: development boomed, shopping developed in upscale boutiques like Jacques and Blum’s, people flocked to the many theaters and Civic Opera House, and sports fans to the stadiums. Jazz was the music of the day and Al Capone held court at his favorite booth in the Green Mill. Join us for this walk back in time to hear about the iconic sites and events so closely identified with Chicago today that can be traced to the 1920s. Our guide will be Kathleen Skolnik, architectural historian, author, and editor of the Chicago Art Deco Society Magazine.

This event is free and open all current OLLI members. Registration is required. 

Our Noontime lecture series is held at lunchtime on the Chicago campus. The series is free and open to all current OLLI members.
