DuSable Museum Adding New Outdoor Event Space

The landscaped plaza will host weddings and private functions in the South Side's Washington Park.

An old parking lot at Washington Park's DuSable Museum of African-American History will get new life as a landscaped outdoor event space for private functions and weddings, the South Side museum announced last week. The $582,440 project is expected to be done in time for September's Chicago Architecture Biennial.
