On May 21, the Wright Plus Architectural Housewalk took place with the support and cooperation of many kind and generous individuals. In order to create a safe environment for everyone, all guests, volunteers and staff provided proof of full vaccination and wore face masks inside all private homes, Wright’s Home & Studio, and while riding shuttles.
This year’s housewalk featured beautiful Oak Park residences on blocks neighboring the Home & Studio. We are deeply grateful to this gracious community for helping us welcome guests to this living museum of architecture with spirit, hospitality, and friendship, year after year.
We would like to thank the homeowners for sharing their magnificent homes. We are grateful to the 350 volunteers who spent hundreds of hours on planning and execution to make the Housewalk a spectacular event.
And finally, we would like to thank our guests, who traveled here to explore the architectural legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright, one of America’s great visionaries.
Wright Plus would not be possible without our sponsors and patrons: Village of Oak Park, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Bulley & Andrews, @properties, Heritage Auctions, Old Second National Bank, Albion Residential, Baird & Warner, Chicago’s North Shore Convention & Visitors Bureau, Davey Tree Expert Company, Downtown Oak Park, Prairie Title, and West Studio.
Thank you to our Dine Wright restaurant sponsors: Courageous Bakery Café, Cucina Paradiso, Giordano’s Restaurant & Pizzeria, Hemmingway’s Bistro, Maya del Sol, Mickey’s Gyros, Petersen’s Ice Cream, and Victory Italian.
Finally, we would like to thank the following local florists for their beautiful floral arrangements: Fairy Godmothers Wedding & Event Design, Flowers of Paradise, Garland Flowers, Good Earth Greenhouse, Moss Modern Flowers, Niko’s Flower Designs, Squires Florist, Tulipia Floral Design, and Westgate Flower & Plant Shop.
Without our many friends in this community, Wright Plus would not be possible.
Thank you all.
