The results are in for the Chicago History Bowl, a bracket-style tournament to determine a future exhibition at the Chicago History Museum. After inviting Chicagoans to submit their exhibition ideas, the Museum identified the 16 most submitted topics and employed a three round, bracket-style tournament for participants to select their favorite. The topic Chicago Authors had the most votes and will be researched and presented as a future exhibition at the Museum. Chicago Authors had more votes in the final round than Prohibition, Neighborhoods, and Architecture, and also beat topics such as The Great Chicago Fire, Sports, and Food & Drink.
“We asked Chicago to give us an assignment, and we are excited to present Chicago Authors as a future exhibition at the Museum,” Chicago History Museum President Gary T. Johnson said.
