Marcia Scurfield asks:
<<I didn't get in on the Frank
Lloyd Wright trip. Does anyone know of any other tours to see his
architecture?>>

Marcia,
The Wright studio is in Oak Park, about a 15 minute cab ride west of the
Hilton. More than a dozen homes designed by Wright are in a historic district
around the studio. Maps are available at the studio so you can do-it-yourself!
The Wright designed Robie House is in Hyde Park, 15 minutes south of the
Hilton by cab, near the University of Chicago, a wonderful Gothic campus.
More information is available from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, which
is a half dozen blocks north of the hotel on Michigan Avenue. I'm sure
information will be available at the Hilton. Chicago is a wonderful place for
artists and its a great to know you all are coming. If you have half as good a
time here as I had at the convention in New Orleans, you'll be doing well.
