Holiday shopping just got easier for the Chicago architecture buff. On Thursday, December 4 from 5-7 p.m., The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust will hold a Holiday Open House in the spectacular Wright-designed Rookery Light Court (209 S. LaSalle St.) in downtown Chicago.
Guests will be invited to toast the holidays and check off holiday gift lists at the free event. With merchandise discounts, entertainment and refreshments. The event is poised to be a great pre-weekend, after-work holiday gathering.
And if you’re a fan of Chicago architecture, you’ll find lots to pique your interests, including unique Wright and Chicago-themed holiday gifts among a wide array of distinctive items through ShopWright, the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust museum store.
And if you’ve wanted to get a chance to take an up-close-and-personal look at the stunning Rookery lobby, you can join the complimentary champagne sip and tour while you’re there. All merchandise purchases over $50 will receive a 20 percent discount. Product giveaways will also be offered throughout the evening.
