Wrightwood 659 Gallery Tour

“Romanticism to Ruin Two Lost Works of Sullivan and Wright”

curated by John Vinci with Tim Samuelson, Chris Ware and Eric Nordstrom

This exhibition at Wrightwood 659 attempts to conjure the essence of two long-gone masterpieces. Louis Sullivan’s Garrick Theatre Building in Chicago stood for only sixty-nine years and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Larkin Building in Buffalo lasted only forty-four years, and yet, these buildings continue to resonate, far outlasting their physical presence.

The tour for IWA members will be led by the curator of the exhibit,  John Vinci

Cost for entry and guided tour: $15

Limited to 30 members
