On Exhibit at FLWHEP:
The Frank Lloyd Wright Historic Postcard Collection
Date: Summer 2016
FLWHEP is currently exhibiting historic postcards of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings from the collection of Buffalo, New York, architect Patrick J. Mahoney. Mahoney started collecting in 1980 and has possibly the most definitive collection of postcards depicting Wright buildings, with some dating to circa 1910. He values most the real photo postcards, because they are very rare and are a source of candid, generally unpublished views of Wright structures from the Prairie Period.
Mahoney is active in the restoration of notable Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the Buffalo area, such as Graycliff, which overlooks Lake Erie and was the country house for the Darwin Martin family, owner of the iconic Prairie-style Martin House in Buffalo.
The exhibit can be viewed during guided tours of FLWHEP. Tours are free for FLWHEP members. A $50 membership provides free admission for one person, while membership at the $75 level or above includes free admission for one member and one guest. Members may visit as often as they wish.
Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy Conference
Dates: November 2-6, 2016
Location: San Francisco, California
Recent scholarship has shown the late 1940s and 1950s to be a period of ongoing creativity for Frank Lloyd Wright. A stunning array of buildings in the San Francisco Bay Area stand as testaments to the importance of this culminating period of his long career.
The conference is open for registration and will include tours of 12 Bay Area works by Wright and other notable modern architects, educational presentations that explore Wrights late years, special events and more.
