Public Wright Sites Swap Virtual Visits

Wright Virtual Visits 2.0

On one Thursday each month, two Frank Lloyd Wright sites will be paired up to go live – side by side – on Facebook Live video. The sites will focus on a particular theme, comparing and contrasting how that theme is expressed in Wright’s design at each. We’ll take viewer questions via Facebook. Twenty other Wright sites will promote each event by sharing their own photos or short videos responding to the theme.

Wright Virtual Visits is a collaborative effort of all participating sites, jointly led by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and the Unity Temple Restoration Foundation. It builds on the innovation of the original project (April-July 2020), while offering more in-depth information and interactivity. Even though some public sites have cautiously reopened, Wright Virtual Visits will continue as a way for everyone, everywhere to safely explore and learn about the remarkable architectural legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Check this page regularly for the upcoming schedule and to view archived videos after the live events conclude.
