5 things to do today: Monday, August 19
Frank Lloyd Wright Tour A visit to the Chicagoland area wouldn't be complete without a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District in Oak Park, home to the world's largest collection of Wright-designed buildings, including the architect's own home and studio. There are both 75–90-minute self-guided walking tours (in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish) and 60–75-minute guided walking tours. Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio. 10am–3:30pm.
ART & DESIGN
"Dominick Di Meo: Visionary Garden" DPAM continues its Chicago-centric summer with an exhibition of paintings and collage by Di Meo, a former member of the so-called Monster Roster, a coalition of Chicago artists in the late 1960s who emphasized the human figure. Di Meo's own work is primarily concerned with presenting the body in frightening, dissembled ways. DePaul Art Museum. 11am–5pm.
Kill All Comedy West The Kill All Comedy producers bring their night of anything-goes sketch comedy to Logan, but they throw stand-up into the mix. Quenchers Saloon. 8pm.
GAY & LESBIAN
Chances Dances Accept no substitutes. This mega-inclusive party kicked off a renaissance in indie queer nightlife and is still thriving eight years later. Always free, always fun. Subterranean. 10pm.
"Jellies." Are you ready for these jellies? Inside brightly colored, bulbous display cases, groups of jellies bewitch with pulsating rhythms and odd assortments of appendages. Learn about the truly strange creatures and why recent spells of overpopulation, stemming from climate change, are harming the oceans. The popular show was recently extended through 2013. Shedd Aquarium. 9am–5pm. $34.95, kids $25.95.
