Afield to Chicago

Arts and Crafts Homes - - UP FRON T -

Vis­its to his­toric Crab Tree Farm are usu­ally rare and ex­clu­sive, but any mem­ber of the Stick­ley Mu­seum at Craftsman Farms is wel­come to visit the fa­mously pri­vate Arts & Crafts en­clave as part of “Farms Afield: An In­sider’s Chicago,” May 20–23.

Crab Tree Farm is well known in the Arts & Crafts world as a col­lec­tion of re­stored (and in one spec­tac­u­lar case, the El­lis House, re-cre­ated) Arts & Crafts build­ings fur­nished in the style of the pe­riod, in­clud­ing ex­cep­tional fur­ni­ture by Gus­tav Stick­ley, an ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion of tex­tiles by C.F.A. Voy­sey, and English and Amer­i­can met­al­work of the era. Owner John Bryan will be both host and guide at this re­mark­able es­tate.

Other sites on the tour in­clude the Ro­bie House (Frank Lloyd Wright), Gless­ner House (H.H. Richard­son), the Charn­ley–Per­sky House (an 1892 col­lab­o­ra­tion by Louis Sul­li­van and Wright), and more.

The land-only price ($1,958) in­cludes ac- com­mo­da­tions, trans­porta­tion and ad­mis­sion to sites, and most meals. To reg­is­ter, con­tact Arts & Crafts Tours, (212) 362-0761, art­sand craft­s­tours.com, or down­load the form on the mu­seum web­site (stick­ley­mu­seum.org).
