Car Pool/Commuter Train to Downtown Chicago for Photo Walk !!

 For this downtown Chicago photo walk, we will carpool from Indianapolis to Ogden Dunes, IN (just a few miles East of I-65 near Portage IN), then take the South Shore commuter train into Millennium Park (the "Bean") in downtown Chicago.  From there we'll causally walk around downtown Chicago, taking pictures, and eventually end up at the Harold Washington Public Library to see the Vivian Maier Photo Exhibit.  All are welcome to carpool up and back with us to share travel expenses.  You're welcome to walk with us, or go off and do your own thing!   We'll probably break into smaller walking groups if we have a large group.  We'll chip in to share driving costs, and the South Shore commuter train to/from Millennium Station costs $7.50 each way.  

Here is our general Itinerary:

    Thanks to Bob Hawkins for our destination maps. He went online and made maps for us from the Interfaith Center to the Ogden/Dunes South Shore Train Station. See those going to Chicago tomorrow at 5:30!

    I assume someone knows how to get to the Ogden Dunes/Portage train station.

    I just checked the Vivian Maier site for exhibits and there is nothing showing for this date in Chicago. Is this still happening? The next exhibit shown is June 27th and it is in Belgium.

      Sorry for confusion....I checked with the Library and this exhibit is in fact there until August.

    I can drive, have large comfortable Chevy Avalanche. Can bring 4 people plus myself. Or would be glad to ride with someone and split cost of fuel.
