Draft of Chicago Cultural Plan calls for new museum campus, international festival

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s proposed Chicago Cultural Plan would create a second museum campus; a large-scale festival site and international festival, and a “shark tank” program that would connect artists and cultural endeavors with venture capital. Under the proposed Chicago Cultural Plan 2012, the city would create a Museum Campus South around the Museum of Science and Industry and nearby DuSable Museum of African American History; it would establish a dedicated festival site to be used for large-scale city-sponsored festival events, including permanent vendor booths, indoor and outdoor facilities and year-round programming; and it would create “a large-scale major cultural festival that attracts global attention and highlights Chicago’s renowned cultural assets.”
