Act Two: Louis Sullivan's Gulf Retreat

Louis Sullivan's Gulf Retreat
Tim Samuelson—Resident Storyteller

Renowned Chicago architect Louis Sullivan built a cottage in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, where he took refuge from both professional and personal frustrations. The inspiration he found in the Gulf can be seen in his work back here in Chicago.

Featured Music: Clarence Williams, “Breeze, Blow My Baby Back to Me,” (Asv Living Era, 2001)
