Fans of Frank Lloyd Wright will be in Racine this weekend for the “Wright & Like” tour featuring local works of the architectural great.
The DeKoven Center, a architecturally significant landmark in its own right, will host the group for brunch on Sunday.
The tour, which runs Friday to Sunday, includes two familiar sites, Wright’s SC Johnson Administration Building and Wingspread, and a half dozen homes which are new to the tour. Those include three homes by John Randal McDonald, a home by Russell Barr Williamson in Kenosha, and two others.
Special events this year include a talk Friday night by local Wright expert Mark Hertzberg about his forthcoming book about the Wright’s Research Tower on SC Johnson’s Racine campus. Sunday morning there is a brunch and tour at the DeKoven Center (1853-76), a complex of Gothic Revival Style cream brick cottages originally built as the Racine College. It is one of the last standing 19th Century college quadrangles in the U.S.
