Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless - Exhibition at Taliesin West Scottsdale

I wasn't planning on buying any art for our walls - I was just going to look at the exhibition, and also enjoy the tranquility and views of  the Valley from Taliesin West in Scottsdale AZ - Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home and desert laboratory.

Well, it didn't happen exactly so.

Myself and almost everybody present seemed to leave with a roll of prints. 

After the opening of the exhibition, and the short introductory speech of the curator, the audience somehow moved from the theatre seats into a long line, waiting to purchase their favorite prints.

The poster-style exhibits, showing buildings and homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, are attractively displayed in the Music Pavilion and look even more dramatic with the architect's favorite Cherokee-red background.

While I am familiar with some of Frank Lloyd Wright's archetectural wonders, I had no idea he had a winter home in Scottsdale.

Hello Steffy- - -while I have visited other FLW locations I have yet been to Talliesan West.  You are fortunate to have it in your "backyard".

I do not suggest you go there in July or August. It took a bit away from the experience.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , yes, Scottsdale's Taliesin was Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home and his architecture school. It is still functioning as an architecture school. In the tradition of the felowship, the students have an option to build their own shelter and live on campus. During the non-summer months(October-April),  there are tours of the student shelters built and improved over the years.

Hi Michael Jacobs , it is one of Arizona's wonders, together with the Grand Canyon. It's organic architecture is quite amazing. I love attending tours and later recognizing how much influence he had on architecture in the Valley.

Hi Joe Pryor , you are right - in July or August, I would suggest taking the evening tours - the lighting is quite amazing, too. Part of the tours are outside and it can be hot. The bookstore has umbrellas for visitors.

Steffy,

A few years ago for Ron's birthday, we visited Taliesin with another couple, and when through the whole place.  We had a delightful time, as we all love Wright's work.  A

Steffy Hristova - I'm a true blue fan of Franklin Lloyd Wright since I was old enough to walk. One of his homes was located not far from where I lived as a child and my father drove by it frequently. The prints you shared are so beautiful! These rolls of print are just gorgeous! You will enjoy them. The ones you chose are absolutely stunning!!!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel , I am glad you were able to take the tours - there is one called "insights tour", which takes us into office, the studio, the living spaces, the Kiva (where the family and the fellowship watched movies) and the Music pavilion. I enjoyed it very much, too.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP , I liked all of the prints, I connected with each in a different way. Where did you live as a child? It's interesting to see the home that you remember. I hope it is preserved and still somebody's home.
