Readers of this blog may remember my articles on LaVerne Lantz from April 2009. I am pleased to say that the inclusion of Lantz's work on this tour is a direct result of those articles.
The work of LaVerne Lantz has never before been featured in any retrospective. The tour organizers (in particular, George Hall who scouted the sites) are very excited about these inclusions. The self-guided tour, called "Driving Mr. Wright" will be Saturday June 7th. Two other events are associated with the architectural tour. On Friday, June 6th An Evening of Architecture and Artisans includes a behind-the-scene visit to the Ephraim Pottery studio for demonstrations and Q&A. On Sunday, June 8th a panel discussion, Working with Mr. Lantz: An Architectural Retrospective, will be held in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin. I will be one of the panelists.
