Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Prepares to Celebrate 100 Years

How quickly one hundred years pass, huh? It seems like only yesterday that we were posting on our UnBeige Teletype Newsletter that Frank Lloyd Wright‘s historic Taliesin project was finally being completed way out there in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Now it’s the 100th anniversary of the famous piece of architecture and the landmark site has a year of events planned (though starting in April, because we can’t blame anyone for not wanting to be in the Midwest in the winter). Here’s where you can find the full list of activities, dates, and locations, and here’s a quick rundown on some of the bigger events they have planned:

The program of events will be concentrated within the Taliesin tour season which runs May through October. It will include a series of concerts, performances, lectures, exhibits, artist workshops and a closing gala to pay tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and legacy. Several performances will take place at the Taliesin Estate’s Hillside Theater, including concerts by the Chicago Chamber Musicians and the Third Coast Percussion Ensemble, and dance performances under the direction of University of Wisconsin dance professor Li Chiao-Ping. Wright’s personal photographer, Pedro E. Guerrero, will exhibit a limited-edition series of his photographs titled Wright and Taliesin: a Retrospective.
