CAF Plans Architecture Scavenger Hunt in Chicago Loop

The Chicago Architecture Foundation is inviting fans of Chicago Loop buildings to participate in an architectural scavenger hunt on Saturday, June 7. The three-hour game will be followed by an awards reception in the atrium at the CAF's headquarters, the Railway Exchange Building (formerly the Santa Fe Buildng), 224 S. Michigan Ave.

Participants will travel through the Loop with a map and game guide furnished by the CAF. They will solve clues and complete various tasks at 20 different architectural sites. The game is designed for novices as well as architectural experts. The scavenger hunt will take place rain or shine, and involves three hours of physical activity traveling around the Loop.

The clues might involve an intro about the historic nature of a building along with a clue to images or ornaments on its façade or in its lobby. Participants will be asked to write down the answers to the clues and to take a photo and post it to a social media site.

Registered participants will receive a t-shirt, a Divvy bike pass, and a ticket for a drink provided by Goose Island Brewing at the reception.

The scavenger hunt is part of a new CAF series that offers visitors a behind-the-scenes look at iconic buildings. The first such event was an all-access tour of the Auditorium Theatre building in March. The CAF conducted a similar tour in May at the historic private Columbia Yacht Club on Lake Michigan, which featured a tour of the MV Abegweit "Abby" ferry, a 372-foot railway, vehicle and passenger ferry that is now the yacht club's dining and event space.

The CAF Scavenger Hunt will take place from 1 to 4pm on Saturday, June 7. Meet at the CAF center at 224 S. Michigan Ave. at 12 noon to register and pick up game materials. An awards reception will follow from 4 to 6pm at the same location. Tickets are $20 for members, $25 for nonmembers and can be purchased online. For more information, see the website or call 312-922-0481

From Chicago to Senegal by Way of the Drum: Interview with Local Filmmaker Mallory Sohmer

By Ana Sekler

Mallory Sohmer is a freelance documentary filmmaker from Chicago and a Columbia College alumna. She co-directed the new film, Drum Beat Journey, the story of four inner-city youth who travel to Petit Mbao, Senegal, to participate in a drumming workshop. The program used music as a vehicle to capture and connect with the young men in an engaging and original way. But this is not just a film about drumming; it's about stepping into another culture to learn about oneself.
