On Tuesday, October 15, AGC Founder and Executive Director Sarah Elizabeth Ippel will share her vision for our school and the future of public education in our city during a Chicago Ideas Week talk titled “Big Shoulders, Big Ideas.” Sarah Elizabeth will be joined by fellow Chicago thinkers Heather Sperling, of Tasting Table, Thomas Dyja, of the Third Coast, Mark Peters, of Argonne National Labs, Steve Edwards, of U. Chicago, and Tom RIcketts, of the Chicago Cubs and Incapital LLC, to explore Chicago’s reputation as the city with “Big Shoulders and Big Ideas.”
Chicago Architect and Founding Father Daniel Burnham’s demand that we “make no little plans,” has inspired generations of entrepreneurs in Chicago, including our founder and our current students, whose visions for their future certainly have “magic to stir mens’ blood,” just as Burnham would have wished.
Ms. Ippel’s talk will take place at the Edlis Nelson Theater at the Museum of Contemporary Art downtown at 4:00pm on October 15th. Tickets are available for $15 on the CIW website, click here to purchase. This talk is a great introduction to AGC for Chicagoans interested in learning more about our founding and our future.
