In December of 2010 renowned sculpture Dennis Downes' heroic sized bronze sculpture Captain George “Cap” Wellington Streeter was permanently installed in downtown Chicago.  The installation increased interest and awareness of the Streeterville neighborhood’s namesake.

On September 22, 2013 Lauren and Mark Singer from Chicago Crime Tours attended an outdoor theatre performance by Theatre Hikes called  Streeterville: The Play.  The play showcased the life of Cap, his mishaps, and contributions to the neighborhood bearing his name.  The brilliant performance took place on a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Navy Pier’s Gateway Park South and was followed by a reception on the north wall of Ogden slip aboard the Celebration yacht, courtesy of Shoreline Charters.  Dennis Downes is seen here (photo left) with Lauren Singer and a miniature version of the sculpture, and he is seen here (photo right) with a poster of Cap Streeter and Mark Singer at a social gathering before the performance..
