Join master storyteller Timothy Totten and author/lecturer Kim Bixler for a half-day symposium on Frank Lloyd Wright (lectures, photographs and videos) capped off by a private tour of Wright’s Hollyhock House.
Timothy Totten has studied the life and work of Frank Lloyd Wright for over 25 years, visiting more than 100 Wright-designed buildings across the United States. Totten resides in Florida and has brought his energetic storytelling style to packed rooms at museums, theaters and Wright-designed venues throughout the United States.
Kim Bixler’s family owned Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1908 Edward E. Boynton House in Rochester, NY from 1977 to 1994. 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 prairie-style house).
Kim Bixler published her latest book, Growing Up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House, and can be seen in the PBS documentary Frank Lloyd Wright’s Boynton House: The Next Hundred Years. Kim will recount the tumultuous history of the house through an engaging multi-media presentation of family photographs, historical documents and personal anecdotes. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear firsthand the unforgettable story of growing up in a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
