River Forest United Methodist Church

RFUMC in the Wright Plus 2016 !

We were very blessed and honored to participate in the Wright Plus 2016, a Housewalk in Oak Park and River Forest IL, Organized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust. Our Church functioned as the 2016 Wright plus prairie School Exhibit Area and oasis.

 

Visitors could admired the original art glass based on a stylized wheat design windows designed by Drummond in 1871, they watched a video and photographic display panels focusing on research highlights related to Wright, his studio and the prairie school architects.

The RFUMC youth group sold water and snacks to contribute with the PADS program, and while we were selling snacks we played traditional and contemporary music with guitars, violin and drums to offer a fun experience to our visitors.

Our church members worked hard to exhibit our church building to the world; we offered our facilities with joy and love for our community, and we want to continue to do more activities and programs in the future.
