The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust will host its semiannual After Hours gathering at Wright's Prairie-style masterpiece, the Frederick C. Robie House in April.

Robie House will be open 5-8 p.m. every Friday in April, beginning April 7, and continuing on April 14, 21 and 28. Robie House is located at 5757 S. Woodlawn Ave. in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be served. A small jazz band will perform.

Admission is $30 for Trust Members and $35 for nonmembers. Advance reservations are recommended. For more information, visit flwright.org/afterhoursrobie .

During the evening, guests will have the chance to explore Frank Lloyd Wright's quintessential Prairie style home at their leisure. April After Hours allows access to Robie House's balconies ( weather permitting ) and private spaces, which include three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the third floor. Interpreters will be on hand to answer questions.

The Frederick C. Robie House is a world-renowned masterpiece. The American Association of Architects named Robie House one of the 10 most significant buildings of the 20th century. Wright's Robie House features an open floor plan, which introduced a new way of American living that paved the way for modern residential design.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is a leading national Frank Lloyd Wright nonprofit organization based in Chicago, where the largest number of original Wright sites is located. Dedicated to preservation and interpretation of Wright's design legacy, the Trust operates public tours at five Chicago area sites and offers both in-school and on-site programs for youth, families and adults. Owner, operator and preservation steward of Wright's Oak Park Home and Studio ( 1889/1898 ) where Wright established his career and created the Prairie-style of architecture, the Trust also operates the iconic Frederick C. Robie House ( 1908-10 ) in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, and offers public tours and programs at Unity Temple ( 1905-08 ) in Oak Park, The Rookery Light Court ( 1905 ) in the Chicago Loop and Emil Bach House ( 1915 ) in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood.
