Coco Chanel
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel (1883-1971) was not only the most influential designer of the 20th century, she was one of the most influential women of all time; Australian Financial Review named her one of the top 10 business tycoons of the century.   Ninety years after Coco Chanel advocated that women should be comfortable in their clothes; that they could be casually elegant and sophisticated, her theories remain as the underpinning of current style.  She continues to influence another generation of designers and to guide women through an otherwise expensive and frustrating world of ever-changing fashion.
 
Chanel decreed that being well-dressed is about timeless style.  To prove that being comfortable in one’s clothing was not a male privilege, Chanel put women in trousers and blazers.  She also pulled out the pearls for daytime dressing and designed and marketed the little black dress (the LBD) into infinity.   Coco Chanel’s maxim that comfort is key, her innate business sense, enviable capacity for work, uncanny ability to predict what would become the next mode, and her single-mindedness of character, assured that she will always stand in fashion history’s spotlight.
 
History’s most influential designer returns in a spirited historical portrayal.  Through this performance, “Coco” shares the story of her rise to fame, her fashion theories and innovations, and the creation of her most famous fragrance, Chanel No. 5.  She is also candid about competitors and the men in her life.

The Life and Legacy of Chicago’s Jane Byrne
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Serving as the 40th Mayor of Chicago from April 1979 to April 1983, Byrne made history as the first female ever to be the Mayor of Chicago and the first female to hold the position of Mayor in the second largest city in the United States. 

Historian Jim Gibbons will discuss the life of Jane Byrne, the impact she had on the City of Chicago and Navy Pier then and how it affects us today. Gibbons will explain how Byrne with her spunky, educated, and often bold personality, did not just act as Mayor, but was greatly involved with the city’s citizens and much needed causes. Under Byrne’s guidance, the Taste of Chicago began in the summer of 1980. She also met with actor John Belushi to discuss the filming of “The Blues Brothers” in Chicago. Also, to bring attention to the issues affecting the area of Cabrini-Green, Byrne and her husband moved into apartments in Cabrini-Green for 25 days. Byrne not only left a legacy for the city, she was an inspiration to many for years to come. In her honor, Chicago named one of its interchanges, the Jane Byrne Interchange.

The Moon Landing - 50th Anniversary
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

On July 20, 1969, NASA’s astronauts, Mission Commander Neil Armstrong and Pilot Buzz Aldrin, became the first Americans to land on the moon in the Apollo 11 space journey. This was, as Neil Armstrong said, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” as it ended America’s Space Race with its Cold War rival, the Soviet Union.

Historian Jim Gibbons will discuss the space goal proposed by President John F. Kennedy in 1961 and how it was fulfilled for the U.S. in 1969. Gibbons will explain how Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon with Aldrin following behind 20 minutes later. He will discuss how both men spent almost a full day on the surface of the moon, bringing back many lunar items with them, and how this launched an important part of American history.
