Frank Lloyd Wright and Japan: A Chicago Celebration, July 18–19. Wright’s fascination with Japanese art and architecture began when he saw the Ho-o-den Pavilion, installed in Jackson Park for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. The Ho-o-den was later destroyed, but a Japanese garden—Osaka Garden—survives. Robie House and Osaka Garden will be open for tours both days. Saturday will feature demonstrations of Japanese arts such as flower arranging, origami, and calligraphy, with dinner, music, and a tea ceremony in the evening. Sunday events include a lecture series and the premiere of the film Frank Lloyd Wright and Japanese Art. This event is a collaboration between the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Foundation and the Chicago Park District. Robie House and Osaka Garden; 708/848-1976.
