To celebrate the release of Taliesin Diary: A Year with Frank Lloyd Wright, the first-ever publication of a diary by one of Wright's apprentices, the Museum is hosting a weekend of Wright-related events:

Frank Lloyd Wright's Doghouse
As Frank Lloyd Wright was designing a home for the Berger family in California in 1956, a then-12-year-old Jim Berger asked if he’d also design a doghouse for his dog, Eddie, and Wright agreed. The original doghouse was never used and eventually thrown away, but Berger recently found the original plans and rebuilt the doghouse. See this unique doghouse on display in the Museum’s Great Hall.
Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18 during Museum hours.
