School of the Art Institute of Chicago's MacLean Center
112 S Michigan Ave Chicago
IL 60603

Hear Below: Listening to Chicago Underground

Meet at 112 S. Michigan Avenue, inside the entrance of The School of the Art Institute of
Chicago’s MacLean Center. There is an elevator for those that require accessibility.

Hear Below: Listening to Chicago Underground will explore Chicago’s pedway system with
our ears. We will stop and listen to a variety of unique sound environment, get a little history
along the way, and conclude with a conversation at the end of the soundwalk. By experiencing
the hustle and bustle of this rather ordinary of conveyances, the Pedway, reveals what urban
critic Jane Jacobs calls “the seemingly mysterious and perverse behavior of cities”.
