Overview

While the name Lorado Taft has faded, his works, including "The Fountain of Time," continue to impress after more than a century. Founded in 1906, this historic site is where Taft, an Illinois native and world-renowned artist, created several monumental, heroic sculptures. The studio was also a spawning ground for aspiring artists Taft instructed until his death in 1936. It is still used as a teaching haven for artists, and has been an official landmark since 1993.
