Barack and Michelle Obama have another reason to celebrate! 

For the past year, the Obamas have been working to launch The Obama Presidential Center in the Southside of Chicago. Now they’re watching their efforts come to life!

Michelle Obama turned to Instagram last night, posting photos of what’s to come in Chicago’s Jackson Park: “a dynamic place for Chicagoans and visitors alike to gather, exchange ideas, learn, and also have some fun.” 

Our favorite president says, “This center, most importantly, is for the leaders of tomorrow, who are ready to step up and create the world as it should be. We want this place to inspire them; to lift them up; to give them the tools that they need to succeed.”

With a new, sleek design for the Center underway, Barack, Michelle, and the city of Chicago are ready for new inspiration and a place to facilitate creativity for the leaders of tomorrow.

Watch more about the Center below.
