The Life and Legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright
Presented by Jan Kieckhefer
on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM in the Lower Meeting Room at the Geneva Library, 127 James Street, Geneva, IL.
Please join us as the Geneva Library Foundation presents an inside look at Frank Lloyd Wright and his life and legacy in the Chicago area and beyond.
Jan Kieckhefer, the director of educational and organizational engagement for the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, will be making a free presentation discussing the renowned architect. Through his 70-year career, Frank Lloyd Wright changed the course of American architecture. He emphasized connecting structures to their environment and designing buildings that were integrated works of art. Few artists in any field have matched Wright’s energy, productivity or imagination. In an illustrated lecture, Ms. Kieckhefer will explore Frank Lloyd Wright’s early career and follow the development of his iconic Prairie Style.
The evening will include a short reception, introduction of the Geneva Library Foundation, the presentation, and a Q&A session. This is a free event.
