Chicago’s reputation as a crucible of modern design is renowned. The Century of Progress Fair, held in Chicago in 1933-1934, was a game-changer in design, content and consumer orientation including the introduction of plastic and the promotion of the Streamline Moderne style, among many other innovations. Lecturer Keith Bringe, Director of the Chicago Art Deco Survey, has lectured widely on architecture and design. This event is co-sponsored with the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Senior Center. Refreshments, generously provided by The Private Bank, will begin at 6 p.m
