Lincoln Park Conservatory, Chicago, Illinois from Travel with Iva Jasperson
Positioned near the shore of Lake Michigan, the Lincoln Park Conservatory (1.2 ha / 3 acres) is a conservatory and botanical garden in Lincoln Park in Chicago, Illinois. The conservatory is located at 2391 North Stockton Drive just south of Fullerton Avenue, west of Lake Shore Drive, and part of the Lincoln Park, Chicago community area. The Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool and the North Pond Nature Sanctuary are further to the north along Stockton Drive. Along with the Garfield Park Conservatory on Chicago's west side, the Lincoln Park Conservatory provides significant horticultural collections, educational programs, and community outreach efforts.
Lincoln Park Conservatory is a Victorian Era glass house, built in late nineteenth century. It contains four rooms displaying exotic plants from around the world. Rare orchids, like the Moth orchid, can be found in the Orchid room.
A formal garden is situated in front of the Conservatory; one of the oldest public gardens in Chicago, designed and planted in the late 1870s. Since its foundation, the formal garden has been the home of many sculptors and works of art. The most famous are the Bates fountains, the Schiller monument, and the Shakespeare monument. The formal garden is planted between May and June. Though the peak viewing time is between July and August, the display lasts till mid-October.

Chicago's Lakefront | Soldier Field
It's used for hundred of events every year. But critics call it a boon for the few - that is, Bears fans and team owners - at the expense of the many. The Bears, put up an unprecedented $200 million toward the staggering cost of more than half a billion dollars. But most of the rest came from one of the largest government contributions in the history of pro sports according to the Chicago Tribune.

Forgotten Chicago - The World's Fair Bulls and Bison - Switched?
World's Fair Bulls (in Garfield Park)
World's Fair Bison (in Humboldt Park)
Locations Switched in 1915 - And nobody knows why!
Daniel C. French and Edward C. Potter sculpted massive temporary versions of this pair of bulls with goddesses for the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. The large plaster sculptures flanked the Live Stock Exhibit. One of the female figures emulated Ceres, the Goddess of Grain to symbolize the Old World, while the other, a Native American Goddess of Corn represented the New World. In 1908, renowned landscape architect Jens Jensen organized an outdoor art exhibition in Humboldt Park to explore the appropriate placement of sculpture in the landscape. Smaller plaster models of World's Fair Bulls were displayed at the entrance to the Humboldt Park Rose Garden. The following year, another pair of animal sculptures, Edward Kemeys' World's Fair Bison were featured in a second outdoor art exhibit in Garfield Park. A few years later, the West Park Commission hired Jules Bercham of the American Art Foundry to recast both sets of sculptures in bronze.
By 1915, the locations of the Bulls and Bison sculptures were switched--
the Bison were placed at the entrance to the Humboldt Park garden facing inward, while the Bulls flanked the entrance to the Garfield Park garden facing Hamlin Ave. There is no documentation to explain why the two sets of sculpture were switched. The Bulls remained in front of the Garfield Park formal garden until 1986, when vandals stole one of the sculptures and left the other in a state of disrepair. In 2003, conservator Andrzej Dajnowski repaired the damaged artwork and recreated the missing one. The World's Fair Bulls are now located just west of the Garfield Park Conservatory.

WTTW Chicago Tonight: Preckwinkle, SEIU Rally to Protect Obamacare
Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle, Dr. Jay Shannon, CEO of Cook County Health and Hospitals System, Join Hospital Workers to Call On Congress Not to Take Away Healthcare from Millions of Americans
As Congress Returns Home for Recess Advocates Ask
“What’s Your Plan” to House Republicans and Trump Administration as Efforts to Repeal the Affordable Care Act Move Forward
Repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, will take away healthcare for more than 30-million Americans and cause an estimated 1,150,000 Illinoisans to lose health insurance coverage. In addition, gutting the ACA will cost at least 114,000 job losses just in Illinois by 2019 with further economic damage to the state to come.
Such a nightmare scenario would unleash chaos for working families unable to get affordable health insurance and risk collapsing Cook County’s and Illinois’ safety net hospital system, forcing hospitals and clinics to close, cost thousands of jobs, and burden taxpayers with enormous unforeseen financial repercussions and spiraling health insurance premiums.
As members of Congress return to their home districts during recess, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and Dr. Jay Shannon, CEO of the Cook County Health and Hospitals System, will join healthcare workers from SEIU Local 73 and SEIU Healthcare Illinois to hold a joint press conference and rally outside Stroger Hospital on Tuesday, Feb. 21st at 11:30am.
They will offer a strong plea to all members of Congress not to repeal the ACA and ask “what’s your plan” for the ACA’S replacement. Advocates say repealing affordable healthcare without a better replacement plan is both irresponsible and grossly immoral as people’s lives are at stake.
WHEN: Tuesday, February 21st, 2017; Press Conference to start at 11:30am.
(Healthcare workers, patients, community leaders to gather outside at 11:15am)
WHERE: Outside the Fantus Clinic, near the ER at Stroger Hospital of Cook County
Address to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, 1969 Ogden Ave, Chicago, IL 60612

Louis Sullivan rejected historical ornament, which he considered dishonest in a modern building. Instead he let the building's structure speak for itself. The enormous and ornate theatre has nearly perfect acoustics thanks to the engineering skill of Sullivan's partner Dankmar Adler.

The City of Chicago recently launched the third phase of Retrofit Chicago -- the Residential Partnership. This effort brings together non-profit groups, utility companies, and city government programs to accelerate the number of retrofits being completed in single family and multi-unit apartment buildings, which account for half of the city's energy consumption.

Chicago: Art Institute of Chicago
The Art Institute of Chicago, founded in 1879 and located in Chicago's Grant Park, is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the United States.
Recognized for its curatorial efforts and popularity among visitors, the museum hosts approximately 1.5 million guests annually. Its collection, stewarded by 11 curatorial departments, is encyclopedic, and includes iconic works such as Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, Pablo Picasso's The Old Guitarist, Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, and Grant Wood's American Gothic. Its permanent collection of nearly 300,000 works of art is augmented by more than 30 special exhibitions mounted yearly that illuminate aspects of the collection and present cutting-edge curatorial and scientific research.
As a research institution, the Art Institute also has a conservation and conservation science department, five conservation laboratories, and one of the largest art history and architecture libraries in the country—the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries.
The growth of the collection has warranted several additions to the museum's original 1893 building, which was constructed for the World's Columbian Exposition of the same year. The most recent expansion, the Modern Wing designed by Renzo Piano, opened in 2009 and increased the museum's footprint to nearly one million square feet, making it the second-largest art museum in the United States, after the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Art Institute is associated with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a leading art school, making it one of the few remaining unified arts institutions in the United States.
