PURCELL-CUTTS HOUSE TOUR $25; maximum 25 participants

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

The Purcell-Cutts House, built in 1913, is one of the outstanding examples of Prairie School architecture.  Architects William Gray Purcell and George Grant Elmslie designed this unique residence, featuring custom furnishings and art-glass windows, in keeping with their mentor Louis Sullivan's principles of organic design. The open plan interior is visually unified through use of natural light, and visually integrated with the exterior landscape and garden spaces. Located at 2328 Lake Place in Minneapolis, the house has been extensively restored and is now a part of the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Our docent-guided tour will include a brief circuit of the Lake of the Isles neighborhood to establish the architectural context of this landmark residential structure.  By special arrangement, tour participants will be permitted to photograph both on site and inside the house. [NOTE: this tour is also offered 3/24/2011 from 10:00am-Noon]
