    Join us this spring for a new travel tour which takes us to Lake Bluff, Illinois to visit Crab Tree Farm, a private estate with farm buildings that display Arts and Crafts collections in settings that have been purposely designed to reflect the aesthetics of the movement. Furniture displayed includes the work of Gustav Stickley (1858–1942), a prominent figure of the American Arts and Crafts movement. In addition to furniture, the collection includes artwork (metal ware, ceramics, textiles, paintings, etc.) created by American, English, and European designers, makers, and artists. An additional stop will be made after lunch, en route back to Chicago.

    Fees include guided tours, lunch, and round-trip transportation by motor coach from the Driehaus Museum. For questions about accessibility during the tours, please call 312.482.8933, ext. 31.
