"Timeless" Will Be back at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West

A year ago, poster-style exhibits of homes and buildings, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright were on display at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, as part of a collection called "Timeless". I was fascinated with it, wrote on my blog and some of the exhibits can be seen in my blog post now. For those who would like to visit the whole collection, it is still available on the Spoke Art Gallery website. One interesting detail I learned yesterday is that the Taliesin Wisconsin poster glows in the dark - the night sky, the lit windows and the lightbugs. 

Today's "Taliesin Talks" - a conversation via Facebook with the artists, whose works were on show, revealed that they are working on new pieces. They will be on display at the second "Timeless" exhibition, which will be taking place at Taliesin West on October 23, 2020!

 

Taliesin West

The live docent tours at Taliesin West are now on hold until further notice because of the COVID-19. However, visiting the website of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation (https://franklloydwright.org/virtualclassroom-recreate-your-space/), we can see many virtual activities taking place. What caught my attention is the "Recreate Your Space" activity. It is meant for children with interests in interior design, however,  anybody thinking of a home improvement project can get a start and inspiration with the free app Magic Plan 2D/3D. We can learn how to use our phone to scan the room we will be re-designing, get its measurements via the app quickly and visualize how we can change it without hurting the environment, painting or knocking walls. It also highlights three important principles of the timeless architect which are as important today - respect the nature of the site, use natural light and think outside the box. If you get inspired to undertake a project, please share your before and after photos in the comments section of this blog. We'll be delighted to see them.

Hi Trish Cole , I always enjoy my visit to the Taliesin West campus, which besides school, was also FLW's winter residence. The Insights Tour includes a visit to the architect's family living quarters - living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, patio area. Always inspiring some ideas how to make things better.

Hi Steffy:

Those posters are amazing. Of course Wright’s architecture is pretty amazing as well.

Hello Steffy - thanks for another look at the creativity on "display" at Talisen West and the reminder that need not end even in an age where shutdowns of all kinds remain a part of life.

I have been aware of Frank Lloyd Wright since my high school days.  However, I was just sitting here thinking.  I haven't actually visited one of his architectural master pieces.  I need to fix that one of these days!

Hi Michael Jacobs , I always find a creative task for me when I visit Taliesin. This time it showed up via the virtual classroom - how can I recreate a space  without painting, moving walls or buying new stuff.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , it's easier nowadays, lots of virtual tours and they are free. Still just as interesting and entertaining.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP , thank you very much for your kind words! I would love that idea, too - an Active Rain meet-up at Taliesin West, with a tour of the architect's home, studio and entertainment area. And views of the whole Phoenix area. Ah, that would be super!

Steffy Hristova - Oh yes!!! I'm all for that idea! We have all been on many house tours to tour the architect's home would be amazing and the best tour ever!!! Plus, it would be memorable and exciting. Also, we'd finally get to meet people we communicate with here on AR and continue to build a healthy network of business relationship and friendship! That would be so exciting!!!
