David Bowie Gets His Own Holiday In Chicago

David Bowie’s reign is limitless: he’s officially staked a claim in time itself, as he now has his very own holiday, decreed by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to be September 23. The date coincides with the US debut of “David Bowie Is…,” a retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. The exhibit, on display through January 4, is made up of nearly 400 objects, primarily from the David Bowie Archives, including costumes, original lyrics, album art, multimedia sound presentations, and more. See Rahm Emanuel’s proclamation below, which, in establishing David Bowie Day, likewise establishes Rahm Emanuel as World’s Coolest Mayor, amirite?
