Chicago via Dublin & Boston [ Part Four ]


Day 10 - Chicago Managed to squeeze in a trip before returning to O'Hare Airport, to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House (1909) in a suburb south of Chicago. Unfortunately didn't have long enough to do the tour, but it was interesting to see the house in its context. It still looks very sleek and dynamic - the horizontals really give the house a low grounded appearance. Managed a quick sketch from the corner.

Then finally picked up the train to take me to the airport - perhaps bit too tight even by my standards but I made it!

Day 9 - Chicago

A fantastic last day of the symposium - first a sketch crawl to Printer's Row and then a huge afternoon sketch crawl along Michigan Avenue finishing in the park for the the big photo, before returning to the USk base for drinks.

I have had a wonderful time in fantastic city, met loads of new friends and have really enjoyed the sketching - can't wait for Oporto 2018!!!
