SAF: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater

  • 26 Jan 2017

  • Ringling College of Art + Design, 
Larry R. Thompson Academic Center Auditorium, 2363 Old Bradenton Road, Sarasota FL 34234

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, often called the world’s most famous house, will be the subject of a lecture and film presentation by the museum’s longtime director, Lynda Waggoner.

The story of how in the midst of the Great Depression this extraordinary building came into being, reviving the flagging career of Wright and propelling its owners to positions of importance in the art world will be the subject of her talk, which will be followed by a filmed tour of the building. If you have never visited, or would like to refresh your memory of your experience of this world masterpiece, you will undoubtedly enjoy the evening.
Lynda Waggoner
“Lynda Waggoner understands Fallingwater in a way that few others alive do...because she is a direct link to the Kaufmanns and an indirect link to Wright,” wrote American Institute of Architects member Robert Bailey in a review of Waggoner’s book, “Fallingwater: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Romance with Nature.”

All fans of Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater and the Sarasota School of Architecture should plan to attend this delightful evening, as Carl Abbott will also be on hand to talk with Lynda about the influence Mr. Wright and the organic architecture movement had on the development of the Sarasota School of Architecture.
