Tea with the Curator–The Domestic Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright in the Context of His Contemporaries

March 19, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The great American architects of the late 19th and early 20th centuries seemed unwilling to abandon traditional influences in domestic architecture such as the High Victorian and assorted “revival” styles.  After maturing for a time in the shadow of these masters, Frank Lloyd Wright established his own unique style by rejecting the old formulas, and explored new avenues of personal expression: every detail of a Wright design came from his own creative imagination.  In this program, we’ll look at some of Wright’s most famous domestic designs, including examples found in Ohio and even in Canton.  A brief epilogue will address other architects who have adopted Wrightian ideas in their work. The program will be presented by MJ Albecete, Director Emeritus of the Canton Museum of Art.

The program is $15 and includes tea/coffee and breakfast sweets.  Reservations are required.  Please call 330-455-7043.

The Museum is located at 800 McKinley Monument Dr. NW in Canton.
