Modern Meandering Through South Oak Park

Artichokes in Orange Heath Ceramic Bowl

Oak Park may have found it's claim to fame as the setting where Frank Lloyd Wright set up shop and developed what would become to be known as the Prairie style, and while there's an abundance of "prairie" here, by and large, there's very little what you might call "modern" going on in Chicago's first suburb these days. Not unless of course you peel back the fa├žades of some of Oak Park's residences where adventurous homeowners have decided to break out of the confines of Art & Crafts and Victorian aesthetics in favor of something a little more timely and livable.
