Photo Safari


In 1967, "The Picasso" started it all. Today, Chicago is full of artwork and you don't have to pay an admission to a museum to enjoy it. This 2-hour walking tour will take you to public plazas as well as hidden spaces that hold sculptures, mosaics, stained glass, metal work, blown glass, tapestries and fountains. I will take digital pictures and videos of you at each location and download them for you.
(Please confirm preferred date and time with guide before booking. )

Lynn is a truly wonderful guide. We had a most enjoyable walk discovering public, although hidden from newcomers' eyes, art treasures.
