Start Date: Oct 18 2011
Location: Rockport Art Association, 12 Main St



The RAA is pleased to announce a lecture “Taliesin” by Artist Member Charles Movalli in the RAA Hibbard Gallery, Tuesday, October 18th at 7PM.

In 19ll, Frank Lloyd Wright built a bungalow in the hills of Wisconsin. The site was far from Chicago, where he had made his early career, and abutted fertile farm owned by his family for over a generation. Beginning as a retreat and a small architectural workshop, the modest residence developed over the next 45 years into a large estate incorporating an elaborate drafting complex, hundreds of acres of land, and accommodations for an extensive apprenticeship system knows as the Taliesin Fellowship. The house is thus a physical record of the Wright’s later career.

The lecture celebrates the hundredth anniversary of the building of Wright’s home– called “Taliesin”, and discusses his career during that period. It will focus on a tour of the grounds and buildings with a look at the many changes made by Wright during his long occupancy of the estate.

A wine and cheese reception will follow the lecture.
