Taliesin 100 Years

Wisconsinites are right to lay claim to celebrity architect Frank Lloyd Wright as a native son. 
The proof of that resides in Spring Green, where the 100th Anniversary of Taliesin, the residence and workshop of the legendary designer, is being duly marked with a variety of special events, tours, artist workshops, lectures and performances. 
The celebration includes a reception on April 28 not in Spring Green but in Milwaukee � stay with us here � where the Milwaukee Art Museum will be featuring through now to May 15 a special exhibit, Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century. 
Back at Taliesin in Spring Green, visitors will want to check out the centennial exhibit entitled Taliesin: The Work of a Lifetime, with rare photographs of Wright, the Taliesin Fellowship and Taliesin pre-1914. Other events include an exhibit by Wright�s personal photographer Pedro E. Guerrero entitled Wright and Taliesin: A Retrospective, a concert by Chicago Chamber Musicians, art workshops and dance performances.
Everyone knows summer in Milwaukee is not complete without a trip to Summerfest, the world�s largest outdoor music festival which takes place this year from June 29 to July 3 and (closed on July 4) from July 5 to 10. 
Coming to Milwaukee for the first time, the bi-yearly U.S. Indigenous Games from July 10 to 17 invites thousands of Native American youth to compete in sporting events. 
In the northwest corner of the state there�s the 50th Bayfield Apple Festival set for October 7 to 9, listed as one of the �Top Ten Autumn Festivals in North America� by the Society of American Travel Writers.
