Hey, did you know it's the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright's birth? Did you also know the Chicago suburb of Oak Park is home to the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings worldwide?

It's an exciting time to celebrate this architectural genius with a wide range of programs sponsored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust. One of the most compelling events will be the Wright Plus 150 Architectural House Walk in Oak Park on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 9am-5pm. It presents interior tours of rarely seen private homes and public buildings designed by Wright and his contemporaries. Here's a peek from @FLWTrust:

This event will take place come rain or shine, and visitors will have the following opportunities:

  • Four private Wright homes: The visionary Laura Gale House (1909), Wright's spectacular Arthur B. Heurtley House (1902), his Japanese-influenced Hills DeCaro House (1906) and his remodeling in the Harrison P. Young House (1895).
  • Refreshments and a tour at Wright's Thomas H. Gale House (1892), an oasis for Trust members only.
  • A full lineup of featured homes located in an easily walkable loop, just steps from Wright's Oak Park Home and Studio.

It's a wonderful opportunity to enjoy unique and creative living spaces designed by Wright and a host of his contemporaries in one wonderful and well-curated day.

Interested parties who purchase their tickets before May 1 will pay $100 ($90 for Trust members) and after May 1, the price will be $110 ($95 for Trust members). You can purchase tickets online. It's sure to be an amazing day of architecture and conversation and it's truly an event that shouldn't be missed.
