The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is hosting its popular After Hours – which allows visitors to experience a Wright house in a casual, festive atmosphere – at two of its historic tour sites in Chicago.The Trust will host an After Hours 5:30-7:30 p.m.
The beautifully restored Emil Bach House, which Wright designed in 1915, has well-appointed grounds and a Japanese-style tea house that will be open to After Hours guests. Visit the historic home’s gorgeous interior, and bring a blanket to sit on the lawn and savor wine, snacks and a live band performing outdoors.
The Trust’s volunteer interpreters will be available to answer questions at both events. Advance registration is highly recommended as the events do sell out.
Emil Bach House looks toward future stylistic directions in Wright’s work, in its contained geometry, efficient scale, and distinctive window designs.
