Peep, peep, peep cried the baby chicks as they skittered along the hallway, each chick followed by an enchanted ninth-grader. This was my first day at Faulkner, and I had had no experience at all with teenagers. But I was determined to give the students the hands-on experience I felt they needed to learn about the science of life.

One of the world’s most remarkable outdoor art treasures lies hidden in plain sight along Chicago’s Lake Michigan waterfront — carvings in the stone revetments that line the lakeshore, many of them spectacular, most by anonymous creators, and almost none of them noticed by the millions of people who enjoy the city’s unobstructed shore. Join William Swislow, who has photographed thousands of these carvings, including many in Hyde Park, to view examples of this art underfoot, to hear its story, and to learn about the carvers who made it and the shoreline that was their canvas.
