A relatively new project focusing on superstar architect Frank Lloyd Wright has got everyone excited: #WrightVirtualVisits takes fans on short video tours of famous buildings all around the country every Thursday at 1pm EST on social media—and you can join them for free.
The series will run until, at least, July 15, and was created through a partnership among all the participating sites. The latter list includes Beth Sholom Synagogue in Pennsylvania, Martin House Complex in New York, Unity Temple in Illinois and, of course, Taliesin West, in Arizona. You can check out all participating locations and find links to the tours right here.
“It is precisely at this time, when so many are shut inside, that we need to experience beauty and inspiration," says Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy Executive Director Barbara Gordon in an official statement. "Wright's works bring people together in harmony with the natural world, reminding us that we are all connected, even when we're apart."
Following stay-at-home orders in place all over the country, the buildings are currently closed to the public—a fact that has undeniably affected the attractions' financial situations. Although the tours are free, donations are encouraged, especially considering the generally small budgets available to maintain the sites on an yearly basis.
If you're not familiar with the architect's work, this is the ideal time to glance inside some of his most renowned—and polarizing—buildings. If you're already a fan, you'll likely agree that there is no better way to spend the day than to peruse through some of his sites.
