Last week, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared September 23rd (today) “David Bowie Day” in honor of the city’s connection with David Bowie Is, a career retrospective that is making its U.S. debut at the Museum Of Contemporary Art Chicago. The exhibition has already been displayed in London, Berlin, Sao Paulo, and Toronto, and will open in Chicago today. In In his proclamation announcing the celebratory day, Emanuel said that Bowie is “an undisputed global icon boasting a catalogue of 26 critically acclaimed albums” and that his “remarkable half-century career has bridged cultures and faiths while both transcending and fortifying the music, art, fashion & design, and theatrical canons.” Read the full proclamation below.
The David Bowie Is exhibition will stay in Chicago until 1/4.
