Join CAC docent Dick Clark on June 6 or June 17 as he shares fascinating stories about Chicago’s beautiful and serene Graceland Cemetery—from the lives of the people laid to rest there to a large variety of interesting monuments.
Graceland Cemetery is an oasis in the center of our bustling city. Notables interred there include Chicago movers and shakers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries such as Daniel Burnham, Marshall Field, Potter Palmer and George Pullman, and their monuments were designed by famed architects and sculptors of the era, too: Daniel Chester French, Louis Sullivan and Lorado Taft, to name a few. Join us to learn more about this remarkable spot.
