Whether you are a part of the Columbia community, a prospective student, Chicagoan, or supporter of the arts, Manifest is not to be missed! The festival is located in the heart of Chicago’s culturally rich neighborhood known as the South Loop along the Wabash Arts Corridor between Michigan and Clark and Congress and Roosevelt. The city’s diversity is what makes Chicago unique and the perfect backdrop for Manifest.
