That Belongs in a Museum is a show-and-tell storytelling event in which participants bring in an object of personal value and share its story. Come experience the Chicago Architecture Biennial edition of the show, featuring architects, historians, and educators sharing objects that have inspired them or touched their lives and careers; and everyday people sharing stories of unexpected treasures related to our buildings and cities.
Bar sponsored by Lagunitas and Perrier.
Doors open at 6:00. Program takes place 6:30 - 8 with a brief intermission halfway through. Stick around afterward to chat with the presenters about their objects!
