Welcome to the Urban Culture course at Avila University created by Susan Lawlor and Dotty Hamilton. We travel with our students to great cities to explore art museums, engage with the architecture, study the local film and music venues, and experience the ethnic enclaves as a way to learn about the culture of urban spaces and the interaction of art and environment. It's a fun, intense learning environment.

Pullman Porter Blues at Goodman Theatre
Chicago theatre is always wonderful. These performers were fantastic on Saturday night. The play was a perfect choice as well - since it hit upon a unique historical moment in Chicago history and lives of African-Americans who worked for George Pullman as railroad porters. It gave us a small peak inside that story of work, dignity and struggle.
