Come and explore two very different and diverse Chicago communities–Bridgeport and Pilsen–with docent Bernard Turner of the Chicago History Museum on Saturday, September 22 from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Bridgeport, the birthplace and home of five Chicago mayors and the Chicago White Sox, has reinvented itself as a thriving artistic mecca. It is home to Zhou B Art Center and the Bridgeport Art Center. Pilsen, known for its vibrance and diversity, is a hub for the Mexican-American community. It features vintage shops, quaint cafes, and incredible murals. The tour includes lunch in Pilsen (at your expense). Plan to spend the afternoon experiencing Chicago and learn why we are better together.
The cost of the trolley tour is $5 and payable through Eventbrite on the Community Affairs website. Board the trolley at IIT Tower, located at 10 West 35th Street, Chicago.
