The creation of Chicago’s Millennium Park, which opened in 2004, was a complex and difficult undertaking. Through an unprecedented public/private partnership an extraordinary cultural venue was created by some of the best architects, landscape designers and artists in the world. Ed Uhlir will describe how the project design evolved over its six year gestation, how $220million was raised from the private sector and how the park and its programming have had an enormous economic and social impact on Chicago.
