The 2020 Annual Conference, Interpreting Wright: Visitor Centers and Public Education Programs, will take place September 23-27 in Buffalo, New York. Registration will open in June. In light of the extraordinary success of Toshiko Mori’s visitor center at the Martin House, the conference will focus on the form and function of visitor centers and their associated educational programs.

Visitor centers and public education programs have become increasingly integral aspects of historic preservation. With the introduction of new digital technologies, public education programs are undergoing a revolution. At the same time, visitor centers continue to function in traditional ways: as ticketing and staging areas, gift shops and bookstores, cafeterias and even restaurants. Their intention has always been to introduce visitors to the relevant historical context while also serving as significant sources of income for the site’s maintenance.
