CAF tour to highlight places from "What Makes Your Place Great?" contest

This summer, we learned about some of the region’s hidden treasures through the MPC-Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) “What Makes Your Place Great? Your Hidden Corner of Chicagoland” contest. Now is our chance to go see some of these spaces in person!

On Oct. 30, CAF is hosting an exclusive, one-day-only tour of some of the winning and nominated locations.  Take this tour to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the unique places that make the city and its surrounding areas so great. Stops include the Englewood Heritage Station, Oakland Museum of Contemporary Art, Japanese Garden at Jackson Park, and the Glenwood Avenue Arts District.

Register online for the tour. MPC members get a discount! The tour is $30, but only $25 for MPC and CAF members.

Contest entries will also be featured in a digital presentation at CAF in the Lecture Hall Gallery, on view Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Oct. 14 through Oct. 30.
