This Frank Lloyd Wright Full Size Sprite Sculpture is a striking reproduction of the original that sat atop the exterior walls of Midway Gardens.  This beautiful, geometric architectural statue was conceived for the special purpose of adorning and watching over Midway Gardens, once a center for premier entertainment, fine food and music on Chicago's lake front.  The end of Midway Gardens came in 1920 when Prohibition was declared.  The building was finally closed and demolished in October 1929.

Midway Gardens was bulldozed into Lake Michigan as a break-wall.  As the story goes, a member of the Midway Gardens wrecking crew either recused the Sprites from the lake or snatched them before they were destroyed.  Each piece is hand cast from materials frank Lloyd Wright loved to design with, concrete & cast stone. The most popular and familiar statuary item is the Midway Garden Sprite.
