The Journey of Frank Lloyd Wright's Monona Terrace 05.01.14 to 10.31.14 Guided public tours at 1 p.m.
The 60-year story of Wright's Monona Terrace, Madison's "dream civic center," is told through a multimedia exhibit at Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center. The magnitude of time Wright spent on the Monona Terrace project is a testament of his passion for Madison and Wisconsin and his desire to bridge Lake Monona with downtown. A labor of love, Wright was compensated $250 in exchange for roughly 63,000 hours of staff time toward the project over a span of 21 years. The gallery, on level 3 west, includes photos, videos, audio clips and artifacts. It's free and open to the public. Guided public tours of Monona Terrace are offered daily at 1 p.m. May 1 through Oct. 31 for $3/adult.
