Cols Landmarks/Westcott/CMA: Lynda Waggoner Lecture 5/16
Frank Lloyd WrightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Fallingwater, arguably the most famous house of the modern era, will be the subject of a lecture presentation by the museumÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s former director, Lynda Waggoner. Join us to hear the story of how in the midst of the Great Depression this extraordinary building came into being, reviving the flagging career of Wright and propelling its owners to positions of importance in the art world. Waggoner will discuss FallingwaterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s place as an icon of the modern movement.
Lynda S. Waggoner served as Vice President of Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and Director of Fallingwater, from 1996 until her retirement in 2018, at which time she was named FallingwaterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first Director Emerita. Waggoner has been affiliated with the Frank Lloyd Wright masterwork since first serving as a tour guide during her high school days. She now is widely regarded as one of the nationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s foremost authorities on Fallingwater. She currently serves on the board of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, Chicago, and the Iconic Houses Network based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
This lecture is presented in collaboration with our partners, the Frank Lloyd Wright Westcott House in Springfield, Ohio, and the Columbus Museum of Art. The lecture is possible thanks to grant support from the Ohio Humanities Council.
The event is free to the public. Arrive early/stay late to enjoy Designer Showcase at CMA, a ticketed exhibit. The Museum cafe is open until 8pm.
