The Many Dimensions of Chicago

This presentation by Susan D. Turner, a Canadian architect and resident of downtown Chicago for the last 12 years, will cover several storylines of Chicago. Its history will be outlined, touching on its founding, the great fire, the Chicago River, the Columbia Exhibition and Burnam’s plan. With a virtual walking tour down Dearborn Street, you will experience the development of skyscraper construction. The Dearborn Street walk will, also, show you great works of art: Picasso, Miro, Calder, Chagall, and Tiffany.   

Of course, you will want to see some of the tourist attractions:  the Theatre District, Marshall Fields and the Mag(nificent) Mile, Jeweler’s Row, the Art Institute, Millennium Park/Grant Park, the Museum Campus, and glimpses of many public art pieces.

A Virtual Tour of DIA exhibit, “Detroit Style:  Car Design in the Motor City from 1950-2020.”


Join us on this dynamic virtual tour as the DIA celebrates the Detroit designers who shaped the American automobile, bringing 12 coupes and sedans inside the museum.  The exhibit will highlight the artistry and influence of Detroit car designers working between 1950 and the present day.  The cars, four from each of the Big Three American automakers, include experimental show cars created for display and iconic production models sold to the mass market, displayed with design drawings and photographs.  A selection of paintings and sculptures will highlight the conversation between the American art world and the car culture from the 1950s to the present day.  The exhibit runs until Sunday, June 27, 2021, at the DIA.
