Join us for an evening with Scott Stewart, Executive Director of the Millennium Park Foundation, to explore how the park has contributed to the evolution of cultural landscapes around the world. A panel discussion featuring local leaders and designers will follow Scott's presentation. Complimentary appetizers will be available.
Millennium Park has been the international standard-bearer in cultural public spaces since its opening in 2004. Designed, constructed, and programmed as a public-private partnership between the Millennium Park Foundation and City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, Millennium Park combines the best in public art, architecture, landscape design, and cultural programming with significant impact in cultural and economic placemaking. Now 13-years since its opening, Millennium Park’s cultural leadership continues as Chicago experiences a third phase of significant urban placemaking connecting Burnham’s 1909 plan with today’s drive for diverse cultural public space experiences.
