Looptopia: Defining Our Place in History

The nation's first dusk until dawn artistic celebration, transforms and illuminates the Loop one magical night a year. Think you know the Loop? Think again.
Looptopia turns the city on its head as the Loop is transformed into a sensory playground celebrating arts, culture, architecture and insomniacs alike. This all night extravaganza paints the Loop as an urban wonderland – it's trippy, it's ethereal, and it's all Chicago. 300 artists. 100 venues. 14 hours. More than 100,000 people. And a night you'll never forget.
In an event titled: Defining Our Place in History, Neighborhood Writing Alliance writers will explore how their personal stories connect to historical moments.

Recorded Friday, May 02, 2008 at Chicago Temple
