California Craft: West Coast Modern and Frank Lloyd Wright
February 10-13, 2017
Travel with the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust on a relaxing and educational winter getaway to sunny southern California. Experience some of the region’s most stunning scenery and art, as well as architecture that defined California modern in the early 20th century.
From your home base at The Westin Pasadena, this 3-night, 4-day journey will explore Greene and Greene’s Craftsman bungalows and flower-filled gardens in Pasadena, Rudolph Schindler’s iconic house and studio in West Hollywood and Wright’s textile block inspirations in Los Angeles. Also see the architect’s organic architecture and Usonian principles evolve into a uniquely Californian style in important works by Wright apprentices John Lautner and Jim DeLong.
Enjoy curator-led tours, fresh California cuisine and private, VIP tours of houses not open to the public. Also enjoy in-depth tours of Wright’s Hollyhock House and Greene & Greene’s Gamble House, as well as a curator-led tour of the American decorative arts collection at the Huntington Museum and Library.
