Event description

Description

Stuart Graff, President and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, will discuss the role that historic homes and other historic structures play in our community, using notable modern homes as examples of how understanding these places—and preserving them—tells us not only our history, but also our future.

House museums and historic structures are often overlooked as core cultural institutions in their communities—instead playing secondary roles to major museums and larger institutions. Yet, these structures tell us much about the life of a community, through the lives of the people who built the community, who shaped its growth, or who made it rich with culture. Like first-person histories, historic homes give a human dimension to the great forces that shape communities.

Though the event is free, please RSVP for guaranteed priority seating.

We encourage you to arrive earlier in the day to browse the Expo and enter for the free door prizes to be drawn at 2:30.
