The Women Who Loved Frank Lloyd Wright with Kim Bixler: An Online Program

The Women Who Loved Frank Lloyd Wright with Kim Bixler: An Online Program

In this special, multi-media Zoom presentation, hear the intertwined stories of two girls growing up 70-years apart in the same Frank Lloyd Wright house. Rochester’s only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home was built in 1908 for Edward E. Boynton and his 20-year-old daughter Beulah. During its construction, the world-renowned architect was frequently on-site supervising all details, including the design of the furniture (seventeen pieces still remain in the house).

Kim Bixler’s family owned the Edward E. Boynton House from 1977 to 1994. Sharing family photographs, documentary footage, and historical research, Kim recounts the joys and pitfalls of owning and living in a Wright-designed home. Living with the public’s curiosity, playing hide-and-seek, coping with the habitually leaky roof and managing constant renovations were all part of the experience.

This program will be held online using a communication app/website called Zoom. Registration required with an email address. Participants will receive an email with the log-in information for Zoom.
