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.

Cedar Rock the Walter Estate Opens for 2014 Season
05.21.14 to 10.18.14
Wednesday-Sunday 10am-3pm
In the minds of many Midwest travelers, Frank Lloyd Wright is more connected to the state of Wisconsin, but Iowa has a number of notable Wright-designed houses and buildings. The Agnes and Lowell Walter home at Cedar Rock State Park, outside Quasqueton, is a particular gem. Sitting on the brow of a hill overlooking the Wapsipinicon River, the house commands spectacular views of the grounds and river.
This summer, you can tour the home, see the original furnishings that Wright chose himself, and visit the Wright-designed boathouse on the Wapsipinicon River, every Wednesday through Sunday, in Cedar Rock State Park. The Walter house is open for tours May 21 and will remain open until October 18, 2014. Tours depart from the Visitor's Center on the hour from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please call or email ahead to reserve your space: (319) 934-3572 cedar_rock@dnr.iowa.gov
