2018 Meetings & Events

  1. January GHS Monthly Meeting - Frank Lloyd Wright Revisited by Ken and Linda Bauman
    7:30pm-9pm Grimsby Town Hall Council Chambers, 160 Livingston Ave., Grimsby
    Over a 15 year period, Ken and Linda Bauman travelled across the United States to tour 40 houses, commercial and institutional structures designed by American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright's productive period spanned more than 70 years. His visionary creations were strongly influenced by the natural world and he emphasized craftsmanship while embracing technology's ability to make design accessible to all. Ken and LInda revisit some of Wright's iconic buildings and we learn how many of his creative ideas are reflected in the interior design of our homes and in the architecture of new development in our community.
