Julie L. Sloan is a noted stained glass scholar and conservator, and the preeminent authority on Wright’s leaded glass. She will speak on “Light Screens: The Leaded Glass of Frank Lloyd Wright.“
 
RAC LogoVirtually all of Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings from the Prairie period were designed with art glass in the majority of their windows. Working at the same time as Louis Comfort Tiffany, Wright produced at least 4,500 leaded-glass windows. His use of clear glass in abstract designs and as an architectural element was as revolutionary as Tiffany’s use of opalescent glass.
 
Presented with support from the Regional Arts Commission.

A Tribute to Trebor Tichenor

Fee: $125 per person
 
The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park will celebrate Mr. Wright’s 148th birthday with a benefit party, “A Tribute to Trebor Tichenor,” one of the great modern masters of ragtime, on the grounds of Ebsworth Park.
 
A St. Louis native, Trebor Tichenor (1940-2014) was an internationally renowned performer, composer and authority on ragtime music. For more than 50 years, he performed with the St. Louis Ragtimers and as a piano soloist. Trebor also built one of the world’s largest collections of ragtime piano rolls and sheet music. Some of this collection, along with photographs and other memorabilia, will be exhibited in the house in conjunction with the event.
 
A concert at 3:00 p.m. will honor Trebor and feature musicians and family members Virginia Tichenor, Andy Tichenor and Marty Eggers, as well as the St. Louis Ragtimers. Guests will also tour the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park, one of the region’s architectural treasures. The accompanying outdoor celebration will include delicious party fare topped off with gelato and birthday cake in honor of Mr. Wright’s birthday.
 
The party is a benefit to raise funds for projects and programs of the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park. To make a reservation, please call 314-822-8359 or e-mail info@ebsworthpark.org.
