Midway Gardens Tabletop Sprite with Baton 12"
Midway Gardens (1913-1914) was an entertainment complex on Chicago's south side - and an extraordinary achievement for Frank Lloyd Wright, who personally designed and supervised all of its elements, including a series of cast concrete sculptures he called the "Sprites." The Gardens fell victim to financial troubles and was demolished in 1929.
This handcast cement garden sculpture was adapted from drawings found in the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives. These Frank Lloyd Wright Collection products are authorized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
