The Lorado Taft Midway Studios consist of a converted and relocated barn that became the art studio of one of the early 20th century's most important sculptors, Lorado Taft.[3] It is located in the Woodlawn community area of Chicago, Illinois and is now owned by the University of Chicago.[2] It was named a Chicago Landmark on December 1, 1993.[3] It was designated a National Historic Landmark on December 21, 1965,[2] and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966.[1] It is one of the four Chicago Registered Historic Places from the original October 15, 1966 National Register of Historic Places list (along with Chicago Pile-1, Hull House & Robie House).[1] The studios are currently home to the University of Chicago Department of Visual Arts and have been converted to classroom, office, and studio space for students and faculty.

In 1906 Taft relocated his main studio from the Chicago Loop to a brick barn near the Midway Plaisance. Then a pair of frame barns were connected to the main building to serve as male and female dormitories. The structure contained thirteen studies for Taft and affiliated sculptors designed by the architectural firm of Pond and Pond.[4][5] It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965.[2][6]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
