From June 19th thru August 11th, the free public art will be displayed along Michigan Avenue and nearby neighborhoods. Chicago Lighthouse (a world-renowned social service organization serving the blind, visually impaired, disabled and Veteran communities) hopes this will be a call to action for access and inclusion for all people with disabilities. A total of 51 lighthouses were created by national and Chicago artists, many with disabilities.
I added a little extra fun to our outing by creating Lighthouse Bingo. The kids enjoyed finding the corresponding lighthouses on their bingo cards.
Once at the Water Tower Place, we went inside to cool off and find a snack. Unfortunately, it was too early and nothing was open. So, the next best thing was to get take advantage of some photo ops.
We checked out a few more lighthouses and finally found a morning treat, compliments of Stan’s Donuts (259 E. Erie Street).
As we said our goodbyes to the amazingly creative lighthouses, we stopped to take in the awesome views that Chicago has to offer.
