Vivian Maier Exhibit Opens at Chicago History Museum, Free Days
Vivian Maier was a nanny on the North Shore of Chicago for the latter half of last century. In addition to raising children, she documented life around her. After her death in 2009, thousands and thousands of her photos depicting street life were discovered. Beginning September 8 a select group of her photos from the 60s and 70s will be on display at the Chicago History Museum.
If you check out the exhibit this Saturday, bring the kids because it's also Second Saturdays for Families. The Radio Disney Road Crew will be on hand to teach the tots about everything from the Great Chicago Fire to blues music.
You can also avoid the crowds and come back mid-week for free. There's no charge for Illinois residents on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through September.
