This event is open to all Wellesley College Alumnae!
Join your Wellesley siblings for an entertaining and educational in person private 90-minute walking tour of downtown Chicago featuring "Ugly" Buildings! Chicago is the architectural capital of the country and has so many tours profiling these wonderful, beautiful buildings. Hiding around these architectural masterpieces, however, are "ugly" buildings. Some of these structures have been "ugly" since inception. Others become "ugly" due to falling into disrepair, questionable renovations, or cringe-worthy expansions. Some are decent buildings that just have a few really "ugly" features. Regardless of how and why a building strains the eyes, they are showcased on this "Ugly" Buildings Tour! This “educational roast” teases these buildings and creates a conversation on what makes a building pretty or ugly. These opinions are all subjective, so anticipate a lively discussion.
We will meet at the tour inception site and in the case of bad weather, this tour will switch to an indoor tour that features the interiors of some extraordinary spaces within Downtown Chicago.
There is a $20 charge for this walking tour. There is a 15 person capacity for this tour and we will close RSVP access once capacity has been reached.
We do not want the ability to pay to be a deterrent from attending. If you are a member of the Chicago Wellesley Club and unable to pay for any reason, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of the event so we can make Spirit Fund options available. There will be an option for Chicago Wellesley Club members in the RSVP form to participate with or without paying for this event.
