Frank Lloyd Wright and His Amazing Influence on Florida Architecture

August 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Frank Lloyd Wright is considered by many to be America’s greatest architect. Although most of his buildings were constructed in the American Midwest, many Floridians are surprised to learn of his vast work and influence on the state, boasting the Prairies-style buildings east of Illinois. This entertaining program gives the audience an in-depth understanding of this remarkable part of Florida’s architectural history.

Widely regarded as one of the foremost chronicles of Northeast Florida history, Wayne Wood has been called the undisputed godfather of preservation in Jacksonville. An author, historian, and artist, he founded Riverside Avondale Preservation and Riverside Arts Market. He has published 15 books on Northeast Florida, including Jacksonville’s Architectural Heritage.

Registration is required to attend. This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Key West Art and Historical Society Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the aforementioned entities.
