Thanks to an arrangement among the groups that run Frank Lloyd Wright’s public houses, virtual tours of the architect’s buildings are streaming on partner sites every Thursday at 1 p.m. EDT, according to the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.
It is, however, a bit confusing to figure out what is going on where. Your best bet is to visit the Conservancy site for links to participants, or to search #WrightVirtualVisits.

Years ago I worked on cleaning the windows in a couple of Wright’s homes, as well as homes built by his protege, Alden Dow. The jobs allowed me to wander freely by myself and inspect every part of the structures, inside and out. I also worked in Alden Dow’s personal house and studio several times. The studio portion of the house sits on top of a pond. To work outside you must wade in waist deep water filled with 2-foot koi. It was a real treat.
I drove through Oak Park a few weeks ago. It was a nice diversion, and fun to see the familiar structures. Family members (some born and raised there) live in Oak Park, It has provided amble opportunity take the tours and simply walk the neighborhood and enjoy the view. I will have to check out the virtual visits. Thanks for sharing.
We did one of these for a date night at my house as well, and watched a few documentaries on Frank Lloyd Write. Fascinating guy. Really enjoyed it.
