Frank Lloyd Wright Field Trip (2 CEUS)

This field trip offers a guided tour with insights into Frank Lloyd Wright's family life and architectural career in Oak Park. Frank Lloyd Wright used his first home to experiment with design concepts that contain the seeds of his architectural philosophy.

In his adjacent studio, Wright and his associates developed a new American architecture - the Prairie style. After visiting the Home and Studio, we will take a three-block walk to the Unity Temple. Designed in Wright’s Oak Park Studio for his own Unitarian congregation, it is one of the first public buildings in America to feature exposed concrete and is Wright’s greatest public building of his Prairie era.

Transportation provided. Meet at IIT's Crown Hall at 7:30am.

THE BUS WILL DEPART BY 7:45AM AND RETURN BY 1:00PM.

The actual tour will run from 8:50 AM to 12:00 PM.

Generic Information:

The 57th Street Art Fair is a two-day outdoor celebration of the visual arts held in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, adjacent to the University of Chicago campus and the home of President Barack Obama. Artists and art lovers reunite at Chicago's oldest juried art fair in the Midwest, featuring the work of 200 exhibitors. Most are returning artists, but each year between 50 and 75 new exhibitors are invited to participate by a jury made up of collectors, critics, curators and artists.

The goal of the 57th Street Art Fair is to provide a venue for creators of quality fine art and fine craft to meet with the art-buying public. Whether you are looking for glass, jewelry, leather, photography, printmaking, painting, sculpture, digital arts, wood, ceramics or fiber — you are sure to find something special at this one of a kind event.

The 57th Street Art Fair is an Illinois Not For Profit Corporation and all proceeds are used to produce the annual Fair. The 57th Street Art Fair is organized and operated by volunteers.
