Join Docomomo US/MN for a virtual screening of John H. Howe, Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Master of Perspective on September 16th, 6:30pm-8:15pm.
The film will be followed by a discussion with Rob Barros, the filmmaker; Jane King Hession, author of John H. Howe, Architect: From Taliesin Apprentice to Master of Organic Design; and Sidney Bowen, architect and three-time Howe homeowner.
Narrated by John Howe himself, the film features interviews with family, colleagues, and clients detailing how their relationships with the architect have shaped their homes and lives. Howe shares what the early days of the Taliesin Fellowship entailed over reedited historic footage shot by Alden Down in 1934.
Howe designed multiple houses in Minnesota, including the Grabow Residence in Rochester, which was featured on last month’s Going Going Gone via Facebook Live. Essentially unknown beyond Taliesin, for 27 years John Howe shared drafting tables with Frank Lloyd Wright, who had dubbed him "accomplice."
The event is FREE to Docomomo US/MN members and $3 per household for non-members. Registration is required – capacity is limited. RSVP Today.
A confirmation email will be sent to you after registration. A separate email with a link to the webinar will be sent 48 hours before the event. Instructions for streaming the film will be shared in the webinar during the event.
