At Work in the Oak Park Studio: Wright and his Assistants, 1898-1909
6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 10, Unity Temple, 875 Lake St., Oak Park, Ill.
 
Frank Lloyd Wright didn’t always give credit where credit was due to the staff who worked in his Oak Park studio between 1898 and 1909, Wright’s most prolific years. Speaker Paul Kruty, Professor Emeritus of Architectural History, University of Illinois, teases out the facts from layers of legend and myth to uncover a fully professional office of licensed architects assisting the master to produce the great works associated with Wright’s Prairie style, a seminal period in Modern architecture.

Influences on Frank Lloyd Wright: Blanche Ostertag and Marion Mahony
6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, May 8, Unity Temple, 875 Lake St., Oak Park, Ill.
 
Among the draftsmen and designers working in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oak Park studio were two women, Marion Mahony and Blanche Ostertag. Mahony enjoyed recognition in her lifetime and beyond. But Ostertag, who influenced Mahony, remains elusive. Architect and historian Wilbert R. Hasbrouck will discuss these two women and their contributions to Wright’s aesthetic.
 
Admission for each lecture is $10 and free for Frank Lloyd Wright Trust members and volunteers. To register, visit flwright.org.
