Saturday, June 8 | Along the Shore
Wright in Wisconsin brings our annual Wright and Like™ house tour to northeastern Wisconsin as we go “Along the Shore” to Oostburg, Manitowoc and Two Rivers.
This is our first visit to the area and we are excited to introduce regional “Like” architects John Bloodgood Schuster and Earl F. Miller. You may not be familiar with these names, but Schuster spent many years working closely with Russell Barr Williamson, a close associate of Frank Lloyd Wright, and you will see their influence in Schuster's designs. Miller was a Chicago-School trained architect at the turn of the 20th century with his own distinctive style. From a Prairie Style house in a recently designated historic district to mid-century modern gems, this tour is sure to delight.
Sunday, June 9 | Print This!
Frank Lloyd Wright had a lifelong interest in graphic arts and in learning by doing. This is your chance to experience firsthand the process of letterpress printing.
Join us for this special event and print your own personalized poster featuring the WL graphic of Still Bend. The morning will consist of brunch, an in-depth tour of the museum and time in the print workshop. Museum staff will walk you through the process of selecting and setting type as well as printing your poster. No previous experience is necessary. Due to the nature of this event attendance is limited and available only to WIW members until May 11. If spaces remain after that date we will open them to the public.
