The Frank Lloyd Wright House In Ebsworth Park Annual Lecture
6:00 p.m.
Julie L. Sloan is a noted stained glass scholar and conservator, and the preeminent authority on Wright’s leaded glass. She will speak about “Light Screens: The Leaded Glass of Frank Lloyd Wright.”

Virtually all of Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings from the Prairie period were designed with art glass in the majority of their windows. Working at the same time as Louis Comfort Tiffany, Wright produced at least 4,500 leaded-glass windows. His use of clear glass in abstract designs and as an architectural element was as revolutionary as Tiffany’s use of opalescent glass.

This event is free and open to the public.

Free Holiday Tours At Wright's Oak Park Home & Studio
Free holiday tours are a longstanding tradition at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio in Oak Park. Amid festive greenery and turn-of-the-20th century decorations, our youth volunteers tell stories of how the Wright family celebrated the holidays, from making taffy in the kitchen to spying on their father as he readied the gifts around the tree. The 12-foot tree in the children’s playroom is a highlight of the tour, with its period ornaments, candle lights, and a bucket of water nearby in case of fire. After visiting the Home, visitors are welcome to step into Frank Lloyd Wright’s studio to experience the Froebel blocks, the geometric shapes that Wright credited with influencing the development of his Prairie style of architecture. Hot chocolate will be available in the courtyard.

Date: Saturday, December 13, 2014 and Saturday, December 20, 2014
Time: Tours run continuously from 9-11 a.m.
Location: Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, 951 Chicago Avenue, Oak Park, IL. Tours begin at the front door of the Home on the Forest Avenue side.

Lecture: Taliesin East and West
7:00 p.m.
Built on land whose beauty would inspire Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural philosophy, Taliesin (1911) is perhaps the most personal of Wright’s works. Taliesin served as Wright’s main residence and the summer home of the Taliesin Fellowship until 1937, when Wright built his oasis in the Arizona desert, Taliesin West, to serve as his winter residence.

Join us as we look at these two Wright masterworks, Taliesin East and West, and discuss their relationship to the unique natural environments in which they were built, the distinct design elements that are their hallmarks, the culture that thrived at each site and the journey to restore these masterpieces.

About the Lecturer: Sean Malone is President and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. During Malone’s tenure, the Foundation has performed such mission-critical work as establishing a joint stewardship of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives between the Foundation, the Museum of Modern Art, and Columbia University’s Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library; an in-depth Preservation Master Plan program to define how Taliesin West will be preserved for generations to come; and much more.

Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior
09.12.14 to 01.04.15
Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior is an exhibition exploring the design of Frank Lloyd Wright’s houses, often considered his greatest architectural accomplishment. Through reproduction drawings, photographs, and photographic murals, the exhibition illustrates the myriad ways—both obvious and subtle - Wright created the visual character of interior space and objects within it, each an essential detail of the larger whole.
