- GIERTZ GALLERY ART EXPEDITION: FROM PRAIRIE TO USONIAN
Join Giertz Gallery Director Lisa Costello and FLW specialist Laura O’Donnell on a day trip to view masterpieces from two distinctive phases of Frank Lloyd Wright’s career: the Prairie and Usonian styles. First, tour the B. Harley Bradley House (1901) in Kankakee, which marks the beginning of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie School period. Next, visit West Lafayette, Indiana, and the John E. Christian House, SAMARA (1954). A pristine example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian architecture, the home’s democratic, distinctly national style was afford- able for the “common people” of the United States. Special arrangements have been made to view a home that has been faithfully maintained to the exacting standards set by Wright. Registration fee includes admission fees for both sites.
This trip was a collaborative effort between Community Education and Parkland’s Giertz Gallery to assist with art exhibits and programming.
