Living in a Frank Lloyd Wright
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live in a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright? On March 1, you will have an opportunity to hear from two people who are lucky to have that pleasure. The event, “Original Client and New Stewards,” will feature Roland Reisley, a rare original Wright client, who owns the 1951 Reisley House in Usonia near Pleasantville, N.Y. and Steve Sikora, who rescued and restored the 1934 Willey House in Minneapolis. Jane King Hession, who authored Frank Lloyd Wright in New York: The Plaza Years 1954-1959 and is former president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy, will moderate the panel, which will be held at 7 p.m. at the Lyceum in Alexandria. The event is the first in the three-part “Still Outside the Box,” a lecture series on the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright sponsored by Woodlawn/Pope-Leighey, historic sites of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
