Have you been to City Gallery? In 1999, Chicago's Historic Water Tower was converted into the city's "official photography gallery." City Gallery is curated by the Chicago Public Art Program and features Chicago-themed exhibitions by local photographers.

The current exhibition, "Made in Chicago," features the work of seven photographers whose task was to bring awareness to the continuing importance of manufacturing in Chicago. The photos pay tribute to corned beef, Radio Flyer wagons, harps, hand tools, and Mr. Bubbles toys. Read the write-up in the Sun-Times, and, if you can brave the throngs on North Michigan Avenue, check out City Gallery.
