Screening at Wright Lecture Series February 3
I’ll be traveling to Madison, Wisconsin on February 3 to answer questions following a screening at the Monona Terrace Convention and Community Center. First proposed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1938 as a mixed-use transportation and civic center, Monona Terrace was finally realized in 1997, preserving much of Wright’s original design.
The screening is free to the public as part of the Wright Lecture Series.
American Library Association’s 2011 List of Notable Videos for Adults
I’m very proud to announce that yesterday, January 10, the American Library Association issued its 2011 List of Notable Videos for Adults, and “Louis Sullivan” made it! The film was one of 15 selected from 55 nominees, and joins such notable documentaries as “The Art of the Steal” and the Oscar-nominated “Food, Inc.”
To someone who spent much of his early teenage years exploring his local library, this is a great honor!
Last October, the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust co-sponsored a sold-out screening of the film at the Block Museum at Northwestern University. It was just one in a series of supportive gestures the Trust has made toward the film, welcoming it as a much-needed addition to the Wright story.
Now another Oak Park institution is making it possible for people in Chicago to see the film on the big screen once again. The Pleasant Home Foundation, custodian of the magnificent John Farson house (1897) designed by George Maher, is sponsoring a special screening at the Lake Theatre in Oak Park on Sunday, January 9 at 4:45 pm. $15 general admission tickets can be purchased in advance by clicking the “more information” link below.
