This is an online program. Join architect, artist, art historian, writer, and professor, Anthony Alofsin for a presentation on Frank Lloyd Wright and early twentieth-century New York, revealing the city’s role in establishing the career of America’s most famous architect. His most recent book, Wright and New York: The Making of America's Architect (Yale University Press), was described as a "cultural drama about power and intrigue, featuring Wright's ambiguous love/hate relationship with New York City" by the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians. With unprecedented access to the recently opened Wright archives held by Columbia University and the Museum of Modern Art, Alofsin's foundational research provides a crucial and innovative understanding of Wright’s life, his career, and the conditions that enabled his success. The result is a dazzling dual portrait of Frank Lloyd Wright and early twentieth-century Manhattan.
