Parks, Politics & People: A Walking Tour of Humboldt Park
Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture
3015 W Division St Chicago, IL 60622

Explore how the German, Polish and Puerto Rican communities shaped Chicago’s Humboldt Park since its founding in 1869 by joining us on a new multicultural walking tour. Parks, Politics & People: A Walking Tour of Humboldt Park will take place on Saturday, July 20, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.


This tour has been developed from a collaboration between our museum and two other Alliance Core Members DANK Haus German American Cultural Center, Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture, and the Polish Museum of America in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Foundation.


On the tour, you will learn about the contributions of these ethnic groups that helped create the city of Chicago as we know it today, and experience treasured community landmarks along the way. The tour features recurring themes of immigration and migration and how various ethnic communities made Humboldt Park their home while continuing to honor their heritage and maintain ties to their homeland.


You will also enjoy a treat from Cafe Colao and are encouraged to be prepared for extensive walking. After the tour, you will have the opportunity to explore Division Street restaurants or the park on your own.

The tour will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. from the Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture (IPRAC), located at
3015 West Division Street. Free parking will be provided at IPRAC.


  


Spots on the tour are very limited.
