PhotoAnnual Lecture: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin
Martin House — Saving a House, Saving a City

Jack Quinan, Ph.D.

Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2016 — 7:00 p.m.
Location: Saint Louis Art Museum, Farrell Auditorium
Fee: Free and open to the public
 
The Martin House, a six-building complex (1903-1906), now recognized as one of Wright's greatest early works, fell into disrepair and was partially demolished between 1937 and 1967, years during which the city of Buffalo itself was in drastic decline.

This presentation will describe the events and circumstances by which the house was stabilized and restored, and its impact on preservation consciousness in Buffalo, now a city on the rise.

Mr. Quinan, distinguished service professor emeritus at the State University of New York at Buffalo, has been involved in the restoration of the Darwin D. Martin House since 1975 and currently serves as senior curator emeritus. Mr. Quinan has published extensively on Wright, Asher Benjamin, H. H. Richardson and the Arts & Crafts Movement.

   
Presented with support from the Regional Arts Commission.
