In 2008, change was the guiding principle behind President Barack Obama’s run for office. Today, nearly a decade later, change is what the Obama Presidential Library and museum team is aiming for as they move forward on their plans to construct the Obama Presidential Center, scheduled to open in 2021. The Center - which includes a library, museum, rooftop garden, community plaza, and speaking forum - has the chance to serve its community in ways that are distinct from past Libraries, just as President Obama himself is unique among his predecessors.
We are thrilled to announce our upcoming performance campaign, Fantasmagorie. The first of its kind, this free series runs Friday and Saturday evenings, July 22 – August 6, in Chicago’s Humboldt Park.
Fantasmagorie brings to life the Amazon Rainforest and Coral Reef through live dance, film, music, and projection mapping set on the water. Guests of all ages will be taken on a journey from the Great Lakes watershed to the Coral Reefs and into the heart of the Amazon, meeting wildlife and discovering all that our planet’s diverse habitat has to offer along the way.
