Remembering Rhumboogie Historic Tour with Lee Bey
October 27, 2019 @ 1:00 pm–4:00 pmFree
Lively watering holes and great music venues formerly dotted the landscape of many South Side neighborhoods. On this stroll through Washington Park and Bronzeville, guests will trace the rich cultural legacy of jazz, blues, and swing by visiting the long-gone sites where crowds gathered to mix, mingle, and be entertained. Tour led by Lee Bey, Senior Lecturer at the School of the Art Institute and author of Southern Exposure: The Overlooked Architecture of Chicago’s South Side.
Arts + Public Life, an initiative of UChicago Arts, is excited to announce that we are partnering with the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB) to present this year’s focus “…and other such stories”, which explores architecture and the built environment, reflecting upon social, geopolitical and ecological processes that affect our collective past, present, and future.
