Admire Frank Lloyd Wright? Want to see inside his mind? Well, you can’t, but this Saturday, you can get a glimpse into the home in which he lived for the first 20 years of his career.
Living Beautifully: Beautiful Spaces of the Home and Studio is a themed tour taking place at 10 a.m. this Saturday at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, 951 Chicago Ave, Oak Park. This was Wright’s house and workplace from 1889 to 1909. He used this home as an architectural laboratory and raised his six children there. The home has been restored to look like it did in 1909.
Public tours of the home are available daily, but a special tour takes place every second Saturday of the month through the Second Saturdays Themed Tours. This Saturday’s event will focus on his approach to interior design and intriguing spaces as well as Wright-designed furniture and his decorative arts collection, including vases, light fixtures and Japanese prints.
Space is limited and advance tickets are strongly recommended.
