Available through December 30, 2010, the Arts Package prices range from $99 - $199 plus tax with some blackout dates applicable.
A perfect overnight getaway, the hotel near Milwaukee and Chicago is convenient to all points of interest for art lovers in Racine. Included in the Arts Package are tickets to the Racine Art Museum, one of North America's most significant contemporary craft museums, with more than 4,000 objects in the permanent collection. Its focus is on work from internationally recognized artists in ceramics, fibers, glass, metals and wood, as well as painting, sculpture and works on paper.
A celebration of the works of Frank Lloyd Wright – “Wright in Wisconsin” will take place in Racine June 4-6, 2010. Frank Lloyd Wright is widely regarded as the 20th century’s greatest architect. Indeed, the American Institute of Architects in a recent national survey recognized Frank Lloyd Wright to be “the greatest American architect of all time.”
“There is no better time than during “Wright in Wisconsin” to visit our city to learn more about the heritage of Frank Lloyd Wright in his home state of Wisconsin,” says Brian Wismar, General Manager.
There are an abundance of other opportunities to experience the Racine arts community year-round. Pre-scheduled tours of Fortaleza Hall at SC Johnson, which boasts a Frank Lloyd Wright library and legacy gallery, are available on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year free of charge. Visitors are also welcome to tour the Frank Lloyd Wright buildings on campus on Fridays with reservations required for both tours.
The Racine Heritage Museum features everything from the history of astronaut Laurel Clark and architect Frank Lloyd Wright to Case steam tractors and the Underground Railroad. Come and explore the stories of Racine County’s past in an innovative and inviting setting in downtown Racine.
After a rewarding day spent exploring Racine’s revitalized downtown district and museums, take in a play at the Racine Theater Guild or return to the comfort and warmth of the Marriott.
