As stated in a press release:

State Assemblyman Howard Marklein introduced the resolution on behalf of Assembly District 51. Taliesin Preservation, Inc. President Carol Johnson and Taliesin Fellow Minerva Montooth were present to receive a plaque acknowledging the honor.

Frank Lloyd Wright was born in Richland Center, WI on June 8th, 1867. Having lived and worked in Chicago, and after extensive world travel, Wright returned to his native state and settled in his ancestral valley outside of Spring Green, WI, where he built his home, Taliesin (1911). Taliesin is a definitive architectural masterpiece and was officially nominated this year as a World Heritage Site, along with ten other Wright buildings.

Taliesin Preservation, Inc. (TPI) was created to preserve the buildings, artifacts, landscape, and legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright in Wisconsin. In partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, based in Scottsdale, AZ, it is the mission of TPI to conserve the masterful buildings and landscape of the Taliesin Estate, and to educate the public on the man, the architect, the architecture, and his ideas.

TPI is housed in the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, and operates a bookstore and tour program, May – October, and also offers outreach and cultural programs to the general public. The Taliesin Centennial season included an opening reception at the Milwaukee Art Museum, several concerts, lectures, workshops and exhibits. Still to come are two concerts in Frank Lloyd Wright’s historic Hillside Theater at Taliesin, featuring Third Coast Percussion, premiering a special composition in honor of Taliesin, on September 23rd, and a matinee concert by the Madison Symphony Orchestra’s Rhapsodie String Quartet on October 8th. The Centennial celebration will conclude with a Centennial Gala fundraising event on the Taliesin estate on October 15th.
