Chicago is a city of Secrets. Everything you see here is true, even that which
is plausibly denied. In the city of broad shoulders there are many deep closets.
Secret Orders exhibit presents artifacts, photos, diagrams and narratives that
illuminate the shadowy underside of Chicago. Be careful what you read, this
knowledge can hurt you.
