About

With the help of unique HD video, this program takes guests to massive murals in three different Chicago neighborhoods.

The first mural is devoted to Dolly Parton: singer, songwriter, actress, LGBTQ+ icon, and philanthropist. While there, we'll chat briefly about Parton's 1992 romantic comedy Straight Talk, filmed here in Chicago.

The second mural celebrates Robin Williams, born in Chicago in 1951. Once we "arrive," we'll take a moment to analyze the artwork in terms of size, color, and subject before heading to the actor-comedian's childhood home.

The third mural depicts film producer Quincy Jones, who survived a "rough and scary" childhood in Chicago. We'll also visit Jones' childhood home in Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood. 

NOTE: Due to the violent nature of Jones' backstory, this segment of the program may not be appropriate for children.

Registration not required.
