From inside front cover: "Chicago's largest work of public art to date, Riverwalk Gateway by Ellen Lanyon tells the history of Chicago and its river. The magnificent 336-foot long wall installation consists of sixteen narrative panels and twelve decorative panels." Book presents pictures of each panel, which together tell the story of Chicago from the explorers Marquette and Jolliet to the year 2000. The panels focus on important sites along the river and Lake Michigan and use architecture as a metaphor for the spirit of Chicago.
