Explore the architectural legacy of the Taliesin Estate and hear about its less-known farming history with Ryan Hewson, Collections and Preservation Manager at Taliesin.

Hewson will take guests through a brief history of the development of Taliesin and the buildings that comprise the Taliesin Estate, starting with the arrival of Wright’s ancestors to the Wyoming Valley where Taliesin is located and concluding with Wright’s death in 1959. As a young boy, Wright worked on his uncle’s farm and would later make farming a part of life at the estate. Guests will explore this legacy with the dinner provided and through historic pictures and drawings. Finally, guests will discover the current preservation and land use restoration projects in progress at Taliesin.

Before the presentation, enjoy a meal prepared by Blue Plate Catering eaturing produce grown by Fazenda Boa Terra, an organic farm on the Taliesin Estate.
