Take a Virtual Tour of 6 Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings With This New Event
Calling all architecture and design aficionados: the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy has announced a new spring tour event to showcase the works of famed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Titled “Way Out and About Wright,” the three-day event will take attendees to six Wright-designed homes and churches across the country — all from the comfort of their own homes. “Way Out and About Wright” will be entirely virtual, kicking off on Friday, May 14 and running through Sunday, May 16.
Attendees will “transcend geography,” per the media release, and visit five private homes and one church during the virtual tour, which will also feature personal narratives from the people who occupy and preserve the buildings. The featured sites will include the Dorothy Ann and Sterling Kinney House, a 1957 Usonian home in Amarillo, Texas; Zeigler House, a 1910 Prairie-style home in Frankfort, Kentucky; Pilgrim Congregational Church, a 1958 church in Redding, California; Sutton House, a 1905 Prairie-style home in McCook, Nebraska; Shavin House, a 1950 Usonian house in Chattanooga, Tennessee; and the Margaret and Patrick Kinney House, a 1951 Usonian home in Lancaster, Wisconsin.
