Journeys of Discovery: Exploring Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural legacy at Taliesin

Join Erik Flesch at Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright’s ancestral home and school of architecture in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Flesch offers an insider’s perspective on Wright’s life, philosophy and seminal works that transformed American architecture. Flesch earned his Master of Architecture degree with cum laude honors from Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture in 2013. Flesch was Director of Development at Taliesin Preservation, the Wisconsin-based steward of Frank Lloyd Wright’s estate when correspondent Tom Wilmer met with Flesch in 2017. In 2018 Flesch departed Taliesin to become Museum Director at the Mining and Rollo Jamison Museums located in Platteville, Wisconsin.
