Music, art, performances — get it all in one beautiful, ornate space
The Chicago Cultural Center is stunning from the outside. Add in its domed ceilings — one by Tiffany — stained-glass interior and a wealth of fascinating programming, and you have the cultural gem of Chicago. Best yet, all this beauty is free. Take a (free!) tour through the majestic halls and different rooms, each with its own aesthetic theme, or enjoy the architecture while attending a performance or foreign flick, or while viewing an art show. This past fall, the World Music Festival took place at the Cultural Center, which Tara and I had the chance to attend (and loved).
And apparently, you can elope for the mere cost of $10 in Cultural Center’s G.A.R Memorial Hall. Or, you know, just arrange for a marriage here ahead of time, too.
