        Stewart directs the state-of-the-art collection of art, architecture and landscape design that provides the backdrop for hundreds of free public education and cultural events and programs annually. Chicago’s Millennium Park is among the top 10 most-visited sites in the U.S. and has become an international model for the coexistence of landscape harmony with human life in the heart of a major metropolitan city.
