Please join us this week for the last First Thursday event of the academic year. This month, we will be holding the evening event at the Weltzheimer/Johnson House, located just a mile and a half from the center of campus.
Pradnya Martz will give a talk titled “Growing with the Times,” discussing the largely unrealized landscape plan that Frank Lloyd Wright designed for Oberlin’s Usonian house. Martz has served as consulting curator for the house since 1998 and is an architect/project manager at Oberlin College. At the conclusion of her talk, Martz will lead a tour of the surrounding landscape and grounds.
The talk will begin at 5:30pm, and will be followed by a small reception.
The Weltzheimer/Johnson House is located at 534 Morgan Street. Please see the link for directions. If you are walking from campus, Walk south on South Professor St for a half mile. Turn right on Morgan Street, and continue for one mile. The house is located on the right side of the street, set back from the road. The walk will take about a half hour.
