DURHAM, N.H. – Grattan Gill, one of a small number of Frank Lloyd Wright's students from the 1950s still actively practicing architecture, will discuss "The Wright Way:  Apprenticeship at Taliesin" Monday, Nov. 29, 2004 at 2:10 p.m. in room A204 in the art department wing of the Paul Creative Arts Center.
An architect from Sandwich, Mass., Gill will discuss his experience as a student within the apprentice system Wright developed at his Taliesin studios in Spring Green, Wisc., and Scottsdale, Ariz. He will reflect upon the influence Wright had on his own career and also address the issue of Wright's continuing relevance to our "postmodern" era.
