The Frank Lloyd Wright House In Ebsworth Park Annual Lecture

6:00 p.m.
Julie L. Sloan is a noted stained glass scholar and conservator, and the preeminent authority on Wright’s leaded glass. She will speak about “Light Screens: The Leaded Glass of Frank Lloyd Wright.”

Virtually all of Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings from the Prairie period were designed with art glass in the majority of their windows. Working at the same time as Louis Comfort Tiffany, Wright produced at least 4,500 leaded-glass windows. His use of clear glass in abstract designs and as an architectural element was as revolutionary as Tiffany’s use of opalescent glass.

This event is free and open to the public.

Lecture: Taliesin East and West

7:00 p.m.
Built on land whose beauty would inspire Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural philosophy, Taliesin (1911) is perhaps the most personal of Wright’s works. Taliesin served as Wright’s main residence and the summer home of the Taliesin Fellowship until 1937, when Wright built his oasis in the Arizona desert, Taliesin West, to serve as his winter residence.

Join us as we look at these two Wright masterworks, Taliesin East and West, and discuss their relationship to the unique natural environments in which they were built, the distinct design elements that are their hallmarks, the culture that thrived at each site and the journey to restore these masterpieces.

About the Lecturer: Sean Malone is President and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. During Malone’s tenure, the Foundation has performed such mission-critical work as establishing a joint stewardship of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives between the Foundation, the Museum of Modern Art, and Columbia University’s Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library; an in-depth Preservation Master Plan program to define how Taliesin West will be preserved for generations to come; and much more.

Ezra Stoller: Photographing Modernism
01.01.15 to 04.30.15
wo exhibitions at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts provide excellent examples of two 20th century fine photographers working in the black and white tradition, along with a demonstration of how varied that tradition is.

We could consider both eloquent landscape artists. Ezra Stoller (1915-2004) worshiped at the altar of mid-century American architecture, also called modern architecture, and his crisp, elegant documentations are odes to a specific time and style. Elger Esser (1967-) takes us out of time with his haunting, atmospheric portraits of the French countryside.
