Westcott House executive director Marta Wojcik said she’s honored the Conservancy reached out to partner again to start the four-day conference.
“It’s so wonderful that our little house in Ohio attracted a global audience and to see the demand to know more about Frank Lloyd Wright and his work,” she said.
The conference gathers the global community of Wright specialists and aficionados and will feature panel discussions, photographic tours and videox of Wright’s work domestic and internationally.
PechaKucha presenters will represent various areas of the U.S. Wojcik is particularly excited to have participants from New York’s famed Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum involved as it’s considered by many to be Wright’s most significant design.
Wojcik said one of the attendees of the previous PechKucha event commented they were worried the subject matter would be above their head, but was grateful for the way it was presented.
“It’s for anyone with architecture interest, but it’s very personal and done with a good sense of humor,” she said. “We’re hoping it will be a really nice night.”
Access to the PechaKucha event is available at the Westcott House’s website. Wojcik said a virtual Springfield-based PechaKucha event is in the planning stages for December.
