Louis Sullivan Film in St. Louis

I just found out about this today — sorry for the short notice.

The film will be shown at 7PM, Thursday, July 22 at the Tivoli Theatre, 6350 Delmar Blvd. Tickets are $10, $8 for students with ID.

This compelling documentary examines the life and work of the great American architect Louis H. Sullivan (1856-1924), one of the original practitioners of the Prairie School of design and a key influence on Frank Lloyd Wright. Sullivan’s legacy is especially visible in his adopted home of Chicago, but his work is found throughout the U.S. and includes St. Louis’ Wainwright Building - one of the world’s first skyscrapers - and Union Trust Building. With director Smith.

A showing of the film in Jacksonville, Florida last weekend was sold out, greatly pleasing the filmmaker.
