It's a year of celebration with June 8, 2017 marking the 150th birthday of America's most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. While you can always tour one of the many Frank Lloyd Wright masterpieces in Chicagoland, this summer the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, in partnership with Wright sites across the country, is hosting a number of kid-centered events that make the master architect accessible to even little ones.

Folks around Chicago and the world are excited about the ongoing celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work as they continue to honor the 150th anniversary of his birth. You may already be in the know if you’re an architecture fan, but even if you're not, the Pedal Oak Park bike tour being offered this summer is a great opportunity to celebrate the architectural master and check out some of his famous places, all from the seat of your cruiser bicycle.

If you’ve been to Chicago, you know that Frank Lloyd Wright, master architect, spent the first 20 years of his career working on some of his most notable buildings while living in nearby suburban Oak Park, Illinois. His work remains a powerful expression of a new American mode of architectural expression and visitors come to Chicago from all over the world to experience his vision firsthand.
