For Immediate Release
Taliesin, home of Frank Lloyd Wright and UNESCO World Heritage Site, will open grounds for new Family Day event series
SPRING GREEN, WI ꟷ For the first time in history, Taliesin is offering a self-guided opportunity to walk the 800-acre estate. Family Day will be held on three Sundays: July 19, August 9, and September 13. The experience will offer visitors a chance to explore the geologically fascinating Driftless area of southwest Wisconsin, while also providing a unique look into the history of the Taliesin estate from both an architectural and agricultural viewpoint.
This experience is designed to be COVID and family-friendly. It will introduce visitors not only to the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, but to also let them observe firsthand the agricultural traditions of both the estate and region. These traditions are what inspired Taliesin Preservation to found the Food Artisan Immersion Program (FAIP) which is an introductory culinary and hospitality course exploring cultivation, craft, and the community of Wisconsin’s agricultural community. The program draws its inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision for Taliesin as a living laboratory where culture, architecture, agriculture, and the natural environment converge around the desire to explore everyday life. Boxed lunches are available at the Riverview Terrace Café and include food sourced directly from the gardens at Taliesin.
As this experience is held entirely outdoors, with Taliesin’s natural environment surrounding our visitors in every direction, children will be given a scavenger experience involving nature, farming, and structures. Please dress for the weather and bring a blanket for your picnic lunch.
