Frank Lloyd Wright… Or was He Wrong?

Posted November 14, 2012 in Ankeny, Community Blogs

Join us on Monday, November 19th at 7:00pm as we welcome Roy R. Behrens, Professor of Art and Distinguished Scholar at the University of Northern Iowa.  He will present a thought-provoking, 45-minute presentation, richly illustrated by scores of historical images of the life of Frank Lloyd Wright.  Wright had an amazing influence on younger architects in the twentieth century. Was he right about architecture, and about the intrinsic connections between human beings and their earthly surroundings—including the houses in which they reside?

Learn more about this controversial man and his philosophy of architecture.

Kirkendall Public Library has received funding from Humanities Iowa, a private, non-profit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities to host this presentation.
