    Makers in America

    A growing movement of craftsmen, foodies and engineers are transforming our country from one that mass produces to a country that creates one-of-a-kind pieces, with care. Join the foremost American makers for a discussion of how the rise of the handmade impacts our economy and our homes.

    What to expect: Shinola’s Jacques Panis on reviving America’s manufacturing heritage & the perfect wristwatch; Satya Twena on the one of the last American millineries; The Grommet’s Julies Pieri on the impact of an online marketplace; Alejandro Velez on growing mushrooms in your own living room; Matthew Burnett of Maker’s Row on connecting manufacturing and entrepreneurship

    *Special thanks to our hosts the Evening Associates of the Art Institute of Chicago
