This Friday evening, April 16, the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust will host their monthly Robie House After Hours from 6:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. For $35 ($30 for FLWPT members) guests can explore Wright's Hyde Park masterpiece while enjoying cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres. Advance tickets are suggested.

Wright Plus Tour A Month Away
For Wright fans who haven't yet bought tickets for the Saturday, May 15 Wright Plus Housewalk, you'd better hurry. Tickets are close to selling out (and they always do) for the popular all-day tour that includes access to eight private Oak Park homes -- a number designed by Wright, as well as those of some of his contemporaries -- plus the Home and Studio, Unity Temple and Robie House. Tickets are $95 ($80 for members). Check out our photos and recap from last year's Wright Plus Housewalk.
