Learn about Sullivan, Purcell and Elmslie
If you've always wanted to learn more about Prairie School architecture, you might want to sign up for an upcoming class on the subject through the University of Minnesota's Compleat Scholar program.
Led by architectural historian Richard Kronick, students signing up for the course will "learn about the Arts and Crafts movement and how artists and architects in England set the stage for a revolutionary new way of creating and designing. Through richly illustrated slide lectures [students] will learn about the basic tenets of Prairie School architecture, key figures in the movement, and how the progressive ideals were applied to commercial buildings and private residences." The class meets for three Mondays beginning October 1. (Photo courtesy of Minneapolis Institute of Arts)
