Event Details

What is it like Growing Up in a
Frank Lloyd Wright House?
 
Kim Bixler’s family owned Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1908 Edward E. Boynton House in Rochester, New York, from 1977 to 1994.   The Boynton House is one of Wright’s stunning prairie-style private homes.  During its construction, the world-renowned architect was frequently on-site, supervising all details, including the design of the furniture (seventeen pieces still remain in the house).  In her multi-media presentation, Kim recounts the joys and pitfalls of owning and living in a Wright-designed home.  Living with the public’s curiosity, playing hide-and-seek, coping with the habitually leaky roof and managing constant renovations make this an unforgettable story.  Kim Bixler just published her latest book Growing Up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House.  She is also featured in the upcoming PBS documentary Frank Lloyd Wright’s Boynton House:  The Next Hundred Years.
