In the Studio: Unity Temple
[Unity Temple (1909) Frank Lloyd Wright, architect /Image & Artwork: designslinger studio]
It's been called one of Wright's masterpieces. He designed something like 1,000 projects in his 70+ year career - of which over 500 were built - and Unity Temple was his first major public commission. And what a building it is. At 104, it looks as modern and contemporary today as it did when it shocked most Oak Parkers in 1909.

We're delighted to have a group of our prints available at Unity. They're being sold in the gift shop, and we'll be there to talk about the process of creating the artwork and answer any questions on Saturday, May 18th as part of the Wright Plus Housewalk event. So come on out and support the efforts of these two organizations dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of Wright's work - and stop by and say hello. We'd love to meet any and all of you out there in the cosmos of the worldwide web who have been so supportive of our endeavors over the past three years, live and in person. See you on Saturday, May 18th!
