Interpreting Wright will be the Conservancy's third Buffalo conference, and our first there in over a decade. Education sessions will explore how Wright is interpreted for public audiences, with a special emphasis on visitor centers and public education programs as integral aspects of historic preservation. Toshiko Mori, architect of the acclaimed Greatbatch Pavilion at the Martin House estate, will deliver a keynote address. We'll enjoy special visits to Wright's most notable Prairie-period works in Western New York, including the Martin House, Graycliff (the Isabelle Martin House), the Boynton House and the Davidson House, as well as other landmarks of the region. Evening events will allow us to reconnect with old friends, make new ones and celebrate the recipients of the 2021 Wright Spirit Awards. We look forward to seeing you in Buffalo – or online!
