About

Named for U.S. President and Civil War General Ulysses S. Grant, Chicago's Grant Park comprises several city locations: Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Museum Campus. 


But in 1968, as Netflix's The Trial of the Chicago 7 points out, Grant Park saw major clashes between the Chicago Police Department and demonstrators during the Democratic National Convention. 


We'll consider the 2020 film, Grant Park's history, and public art on this short virtual tour.
