THIS PROGRAM IS FULL.  Please send email to artencounter@yahoo.com if you would like to be on a waitlist.

Explore a 10 bedroom Lake Forest estate filled with surprises. Named “Stornoway” by its original owner after his native town in Scotland, the home was designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw in 1912. Later, it was owned by Bill Wrigley, a great grandson of the founder of Wrigley Chewing Gum. The Lake Michigan frontage includes a grotto and reflecting pool. In the home, we’ll see oil paintings, circa pre-1900 and colorful art works, often with a sense of humor, by Thomas McKnight, Robert Mittenmaier, Andy Warhol and John Lennon. The subject of cars appears in many of the art works reflecting Paul’s avid interest in automobiles as evidenced by his collection of ten beautiful cars in their basement garage, automotive art and vintage jukeboxes.
