Summer Field Trip! As a “thank you” for the hard work they’ve done throughout this summer, the AMAM arranged a trip last week to two nearby Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes, the iconic Fallingwater, and Usonian-style Kentuck Knob, for some of our summer assistants. 

Going on the trip were Education department assistants Briggin Scharf (OC ‘12) and Nico Alonso (OC ‘13), who managed and gave tours at Oberlin’s own Weltzheimer/Johnson House this entire summer, and Curatorial assistants Hanna Exel (OC ‘12) and Thomas Huston (OC ‘13), along with Curator of Education Jason Trimmer, all experienced these fine examples of two different parts of Wright’s long and varied career. 

If you are in the greater Pittsburgh area, it is well worth your time to visit both locations!

oneh:

interior of 157 north professor street, the house designed by oberlin professor frederick b. artz, which he shared with fellow “bachelor” prof. raymond stetson from 1940 to stetson’s death in ‘50. seeing at pictures of gorgeous buildings that used to exist in oberlin gives me lots of feelings. learning queer history gives me even more feelings. the oberlin lgbt archive is an incredible resource for both - read more about artz here.

Beautiful photo, plus a great archive.
