  • Chicagoans spend lunch hour honoring Jackson

    At the Harold Washington Cultural Center, the line began forming at about 8 a.m., and it eventually stretched halfway around the building. In Daley Plaza, as many as 150 people stood in silence during the normally bustling lunch hour, every head turned...
  • Blue light special

    Blue light special
    Don't go into the light. That seems to be the agreed-upon advice from people who make it back down from the heavens after a near-death experience. Someday, we'll all go into that light -- sorry, but it's true, at least metaphorically -- but very few...
  • Kick yourself and your gym fashion into shape

    Personal style goes beyond what you wear when you're actually going somewhere important. Sure, we all wear scrubs from time to time. But even when you're buying clothes to lounge around in, undergarments or even pajamas, they should be "you." For...

  • Another perspective: views around the worksites

    Carl Sandburg got it right when he penned these words about an earlier Chicago building boom: "Put the city up / tear the city down / put it up again / let us find a city." Chicago is again re-inventing itself, and the view is mesmerizing, terrifying,...
  • The Millennium Park effect

    NEW CATCH PHRASE was in the air after Frank Gehry's shimmering Guggenheim Museum made its spectacular debut eight years ago in the tattered shipbuilding city of Bilbao, Spain: "the Bilbao effect." The term, which sounded like weather forecasting jargon,...
  • Meet the first lady's secret style weapon

    Meet the first lady's secret style weapon
    By the time Barbara Tfank began designing for Michelle Obama in 2011, the intense focus on the first lady's fashion choices had relented. Which is one reason Tfank (pronounced tee-fank) remains a secret weapon even as Obama has worn Tfank's feminine...
  • Redeemed

    Whew! Flamboyant New York developer Donald Trump isn't going to foist one of his trademark exercises in architectural glitz on Chicago. He has even radically altered an earlier plan that would have erected a bloated blob of a high-rise alongside such...
  • Feet sculpture likely to move from beach

     Feet sculpture likely to move from beach
     The 7-foot-tall sculpture of two feet at Oak Street Beach this week has legs. That is, it's expected to move to other locations around the city as long as the Art Institute of Chicago is hosting an exhibit inspired by Rene Magritte, the Belgian...
