Experience a Prairie residence exactly as Frank Lloyd Wright intended on this day trip to the Meyer May House in Grand Rapids, MI. Considered Michigan’s Prairie masterpiece, the Meyer May House features a combination of leaded glass and electric lighting that creates an ever-changing effect of colors and light throughout the day and into the night. A mural by George Niedecken graces the living room. Steelcase, which manufactured the furniture that Wright designed for the Johnson Wax Administration building, purchased the Meyer May House in 1985 and completed a restoration faithful to Wright's original vision. Also take a private tour with the current owners of the neighboring J.H. Amberg House, designed by Wright and completed by Marion Mahony and Herman Von Holst. Lunch at the beautiful Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. Afterwards, view the fall colors on a guided tram tour and visit Rodin and the Contemporary Figurative Tradition, a special exhibition. Transportation in a luxury coach bus.
Includes morning coffee and snacks, tours, full lunch and luxury coach bus transportation. Space is limited.
