PrivateDomainsPublicDisplays In celebration of Fallingwater’s 75th anniversary this year, Fallingwater, University of Pittsburgh, and Carnegie Museum of Art are presenting a conference entitled “Private Domains/Public Displays: The Modern House Interpreted,” on April 5, 2011, at the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater in Pittsburgh.

When he designed Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright abandoned conventional notions of building and living. New materials and technologies permitted unprecedented experimentation while creating unexpected challenges that define the modern movement. To explore these issues, an international gathering of directors and curators will convene in Pittsburgh to discuss strategies for preserving and interpreting nine of the world’s iconic modern house museums.

This day-long symposium is presented by Fallingwater, University of Pittsburgh, and the Carnegie Museum of Art for public research on modern heritage. Proceedings will be held at the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater from 9:00am to 4:30pm. To register, visit www.fallingwater.org/125; or call Fallingwater Visitor Services at 724-329-8501.
