At 7 p.m. April 21, CUNY architectural historian Robert Twombly will present an illustrated lecture on the architecture of Louis Sullivan (whose famous Guaranty Building is pictured above) and Frank Lloyd Wright in the Burchfield Penney Art Center auditorium.
Twombly, the author of several books on the two titanic figures of 20th century American architecture, will expound on the personal, professional and creative relationship between Wright and Sullivan.
The lecture is the first in a two-part series presented by the Graycliff Conservancy, an organization formed in 1997 to preserve and restore Wright's Graycliff Estate on the shore of Lake Erie in Derby. The second lecture, slated for September, will feature Jeffrey Oschner, an expert on H.H. Richardson and author of "H.H. Richardson: Complete Architectural Works."
Thursday's lecture is $10 or $5 for Burchfield Penney or Graycliff Conservancy members. More information is at graycliffestate.org.
