Today marks the opening of the Field Museum Dig Site, a pop-up experience at 333 N. Michigan Avenue. The storefront has been transformed into a replica dig site, complete with casts of real dinosaur bones and the actual tools that Field Museum scientists use in their fieldwork.
“Since we can’t bring everybody in Chicago to a dinosaur dig site, we wanted to bring a dig site to them,” says Stacy Dilling, the museum’s Marketing and Advertising Director. “With this pop-up, we’re having a little fun and giving people a glimpse into the world of our scientists.”
Since the pop-up opened on April 1, the Field first announced it on Twitter as a real paleontological site; the first letter of each word in the press release spelled out “April Fools’ Day.” But while the bones aren’t real, Dilling notes that the pop-up’s message is.
The pop-up is free and open to the public every day from April 1 through June 30, from 11am to 7pm Monday-Saturday and 11am-6pm on Sundays. On weekends, Field Museum volunteers will be on hand to show visitors specimens from behind the scenes in the museum’s collections.

Chicago, IL – A Miracle is coming to Chicago. Inspired by Chicago’s beloved 2016 World Series Champions the Chicago Cubs, MIRACLE, makes its thrilling World Premiere at the Royal George Theatre (1641 N Halsted St) with previews May 8.
“The Chicago Cubs have had a memorable impact on millions of not only Chicagoans, but people around the world,” says creator and producer William Marovitz. “This story is more than just baseball, it is about the intrinsic value of believing and how having a little faith can take you somewhere where you never imagined. For the Cubs, it was finally winning the series after 108 years, but for the fans, it was so much more. With this musical, we celebrate the highs and lows of life directly paralleled with the Cubs winning the World Series, and how believing in a miracle can get you further than you ever imagined.”
Performance schedule for MIRACLE is Wednesdays at 7:30pm, Thursdays at 2pm and 7:30pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm, and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets through Ticketmaster or the Royal George Box Office.

CHICAGO – Navy Pier is bringing visual and interactive art in full circle with its latest free public art installation, Loop. Inspired by the zoetrope – an optical device invented in the 19th century – this retro-futuristic machine creates playful animations with the simple pull of a lever, bringing to life 13 classic fairytales. Set to debut in Polk Bros Park on Thursday, February 28, the interactive and whimsical installation will remain on display through Sunday, May 12.
Loop, produced by Ekumen and Montreal-based Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, is a cross between a music box, a zoetrope and a railway handcar. Guests of all ages are welcome to sit inside of one of the 12 nine-foot cylinders and pull a lever to set in motion a flickering strobe effect of black and white images accompanied by sound – reminiscent of early films. Once activated, the cylinder becomes animated with light and sound, creating the illusion of motion in the drawings. The black and white images can be viewed from close up or far away. The speed at which the images fly by, the frequency at which the light flickers and the rhythm of the audio composition are all directly related to the pace set by the participants’ effort at the pump-powered machine.
Loop is part of Navy Pier’s ongoing commitment to offer guests free, one-of-a kind arts and cultural programming, designed to inspire, educate and connect communities and guests across the city and globe.
