Join Giertz Gallery director Lisa Costello and art history faculty Laura O’Donnell on an “Inside Chicago” virtual Chicago River Architecture tour with Hillary Marzec, founder of Inside Chicago Walking Tours, a top-ranked tour business in Chicago.

Starting from the point that most tourists begin — the Chicago River architecture boat tour — we venture beyond the boat to see not only street-level details but also some amazing interiors of well-known buildings on the tour that we would surely miss when limited to a boat tour. Our guide will also provide significant historical context for many of the buildings for which the actual boat tour does not allow time. Our tour will cover a great deal of supplemental information for people who have joined us on the Boat Tour in previous years but is also an enticing introduction to Chicago architecture for those who have not previously experienced the tour in person.

Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. All proceeds will go to the Giertz Gallery.
