Description

Join us at 2pm Sunday, November 19, 2017 at the Jackson Junge Gallery in Wicker Park for the Historic Wicker Park Photo Walk.

Home to two Chicago historic landmark districts, the Wicker Park neighborhood has welcomed a stream of immigrant populations as the area evolved from farm country to today’s “hot” urban neighborhood.

Led by local historian, Elaine Coorens, with two other Women in Focus Chicago photographers Anne Evans and Adeline Sides, they will provide photography tips along the two-hour route. While cameras are not required, they are welcomed.

Walkers will follow part of the diagonal Indian (Native American) path which became the immigrants’ pathway to prosperity. From different vantage points, they will learn how some of Chicago’s biggest events impacted the area and its residents, driving its architecture, cultures and social interactions.

Hot Apple Cider will be provided before and after the walk.
