Wright and Like Tour 2015: Frank Lloyd Wright and His Apprentices

Madison
  • Monona Terrace

    Monona Terrace

The 2015 tour highlights Wright's Usonian houses and Taliesin Fellowship-related architectural riches in the Madison and Middleton, WI area. The event features interior tours of three private homes by Frank Lloyd Wright and five private homes by some of his closest apprentices: Edgar Tafel, Herb Fritz, William Wesley Peters, John Howe, and Herb DeLevie. Most of these homes, which date between 1936 and 1967, have rarely, if ever, been available for tour. The tour tells the stories of the relationships and connections between these sites, their owners, Frank Lloyd Wright, the fellowship he founded, and its successor firm, Taliesin Associated Architects. Two of Wright's well known Madison landmarks, The Unitarian Meeting House and Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center, are also featured. Tour sites are open from 9am-5pm with docents on hand at each location to provide guided interior tours. Advance tickets are $60 for Frank Lloyd Wright Wisconsin members and $70 for non-members.
