Thanks for posting this David.
Christine and I visited the building in 2002, and hoped a good, sympathetic use could be found for it. Here's hoping the cultural and arts scene in the Spring Green area continues to thrive.

Thanks for the video, David. I see that Jack Holzhueter from the Wisconsin Historical Society and the FLWBC was in attendance.

Good to see the interior, finally. I've been around the outside of the building a few times, but have never been able to get inside. Much more interesting than I was expecting, with quite a lot going on, especially overhead.

It's so gratifying to see others who are as passionate about Wright's work and who are working hard to protect his works. The school looks beautiful and I'm sure it will serve as a great cultural arts center. I think it's only appropriate that a cultural arts center finds its new home in a Wright-designed building. Was this property ever for sale? Was it sold by a realtor or was it a closed-door sale? For finding realtors, has anyone ever been to http://www.angieslist.com/services.aspx?

I was there (years ago) when I believe there was a sculpture/wood carver occupying the space?
