Taft and party, Midway Studios

Lorado Taft and party, Midway Studios.

Beneath the full-size plaster model of the Fountain of the Great Lakes, Taft enjoyed presiding over meals at a large table in the main room of the Midway Studios complex. Artists, students, friends, and the occasional pet were among those who gathered on these convivial occasions.
