Did You Know?

Buckingham Fountain was built by Kate Buckingham and is named in honor of her beloved brother Clarence, who was a director of The Art Institute (hence it's official name “The Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain”). Not, as so many mistakenly believe, Lindsay Buckingham of the 70's pop sensation Fleetwood Mac.

Very impressionable to public art, Michael poses before the 1998 Hubertus von der Goltz sculpture "The Crossing," just north of Chicago's Loop on LaSalle Street.

Michael embodies a unique and remarkable blend of riveting performer and serious scholar and weaves together fascinating stories of the city's architecture, art treasures, and movie locations with hilarious tales of its colorful past.
