Brown Bag - The Troubled Man

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Kurt Wallander the 60-year-old Swedish detective unofficially pursues a case that's part mystery, part spy thriller. At the 75th birthday party for HÃ¥kan von Enke, a retired Swedish naval commander highly placed and deeply respected in Swedish military circle, he tells Wallander about a 1980 incident involving an unidentified submarine that "invaded Swedish territorial waters." When he was about to fire depth charges to bring the sub to the surface, higher-ups ordered von Enke to abort. A few days after confiding in Wallander, von Enke and his wife disappear.

"S.O.S.! Sculpture Saves the Trees" with Margot McMahon

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Ten sculptors, including Margot McMahon from Oak Park, worked with Chicago Sculpture International and the Chicago Park District to keep dead trees from being removed by sculpting them. McMahon suspended 13 flying song birds and perched an owl on her Jackson Park tree along Lake Shore Drive south of 57th Street. These sculptures are supported by Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and the City of Chicago to bring attention to the number of trees expected to die over the next few years.
