OWATONNA:  FROM LOUIS SULLIVAN TO FRANK GEHRY $55, maximum 50 participants

Please see our Conference Blog for specific information regarding transportation arrangements.

The National Farmers’ Bank of Owatonna, Minnesota was designed by Louis Sullivan, with decorative elements by George Grant Elmslie.  Built in 1907-1908, it has been called a 'jewel-box of the prairie,' and is considered to be one of Sullivan's outstanding surviving masterpieces.  Especially noteworthy are its distinctive art glass windows and terracotta ornamentation.  At the nearby Gainey Conference Center, tour participants will then enjoy a catered buffet luncheon (included in the tour price) before having an opportunity to view Frank Gehry's Winton Guest House, newly-restored on the grounds of the Norman-style Gainey Home, designed by Edwin Lundie.
