Lecture in Villa Stenersen: Director Lynda S. Waggoner, «Frank Lloyd Wright and Fallingwater»
24 May 2016
Lynda S. Waggoner, Vice President of Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and Director of Fallingwater, 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 nation’s foremost authorities on Fallingwater.
“Lynda Waggoner understands Fallingwater in a way that few others alive do…because she is a direct link to the Kaufmanns and an indirect link to Wright,” wrote American Institute of Architects member Robert Bailey in a review of Waggoner’s book, “Fallingwater: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Romance with Nature.”
Ms. Waggoner studied architecture at the University of Kentucky and art history at the University of Pittsburgh, where she earned dual degrees in art history and anthropology. Prior to returning to Fallingwater as its first curator, she held other curatorial and director level positions.
Waggoner is a founding board member and past president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, Chicago, and currently serves as Vice President and chair of its development committee. She is also a member of the board of the Iconic Houses Network based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Villa Stenersen is open from 6 PM. Pianist Philip Birkirkara will play before and after the lecture. Light meals served at the bar. There are no guided tours this evening, but you can explore the villa yourself before and after the lecture. NB: the lecture will be held in English! The villa will be closed at 9 PM. The lecture is now fully booked.
