This week on Curious City:
Blue Island’s freedom from Chicago; Freedom Wall banner in Chicago
You voted, we listened … and then reported. We asked which “stubborn suburb” that resisted annexation from Chicago you wanted to hear a story about: Oak Park, Blue Island or Evanston. The small but mighty Blue Island prevailed, big time. Board our time machine and hear why Blue Island decided it was better to go it alone.
Then, we demystify a piece of public art in Chicago that’s stumped passersby for 20 years. What’s the deal behind the black banner on a brick building in the loop with all the (seemingly) random names on it? It’s art, and it’s interesting!
Who defines freedom to you? Submit up to three names to participate in a re-imagination of Freedom Wall.
