Conservancy members from all over the United States as well as Japan, Australia and Israel attended the Conservancy’s 30th annual conference in Los Angeles, Oct. 1-6. Wright’s Influence in Postwar Southern California included educational presentations, tours of spectacular and innovative buildings by Lautner, Neutra, Schindler and other architects Wright influenced, and an advocacy-focused visit to the Freeman House. Exclusive tours of non-public areas of Hollyhock House and the under-restoration Residence A at Barnsdall Park concluded with a sunset dinner on the lawn, sponsored by Oliver Peoples and the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation. Wright Spirit Awards were presented to the Frank Lloyd Wright World Heritage Council and L.A. Councilman Mitch O’Farrell at Hollyhock House, and to Janet and Van Korell, Ken and Carrie Cox, Mark Hertzberg, Henry Whiting, and Tom and Heather Papinchak at a gala dinner Oct. 5. More than 100 Wright homeowners and public site representatives participated in a two-day gathering that included dinner and useful presentations. Thank you to all who attended!

Join us next year when the annual conference will be held in Buffalo, Sept. 23-27, 2020.
