While it is focused on changing attitudes on one college campus, The Deans’ Bible sheds light on cultural change in America as a whole, exploring how each of the deans participated nationally in the quest for equality. The story rolls through the "picture-perfect," suppressive 1950s, the awakening 1960s, women’s liberation, Title IX, 1980s AIDS and alcohol epidemics, the changing mores for the disabled, and ends in the twenty-first century.

Frank Lloyd Wright Tour
(Tour takes place on Saturday, June 7, 2014)

Cost: $10 per adult
*please bring cash or check to pay at the door

SAMARA is designed on a grid, uses cantilevered surfaces and creates a new sense of space. This unique combination of design principles when taken together forms Mr. Wright's "grammar" for Usonian architecture. The John E. Christian residence exemplifies the very best that Frank Lloyd Wright had to offer his clients. As professionals at nearby Purdue University they expressed a desire to entertain faculty, students and community-minded people in their new home.
