As stated in the press release:

The day will include a series of morning and afternoon lectures, a walking tour highlighting the buildings and landscape at Taliesin, interactive design activities, and will conclude with a delightful afternoon tea, a daily ritual that has become a Fellowship tradition at Taliesin.

Attendance at this special presentation will be strictly limited to 100 guests and advance reservation is required; however, the lecture presentations will also be webcast to enable participants from around the world to experience a rare glimpse into the private life of Frank Lloyd Wright and his Fellowship at Taliesin. Proceeds from this event will support restoration activities needed to preserve Taliesin’s Hillside Theatre Complex, a National Historic Landmark, for future generations.
 
Frank Lloyd Wright, who is known for creating such buildings as the Robie House (Chicago, IL, 1908), The Imperial Hotel (Tokyo, Japan, 1916-22), Fallingwater (Bear Run, PA, 1935), and the Guggenheim Museum (New York, NY, 1959), started construction of Taliesin, located near Spring Green, Wisconsin, in 1911 as a summer home. Taliesin has been referred to as Wright’s autobiography in wood and stone. Over the years, it became something much greater. It was modified repeatedly during his life and served as his experimental workshop for design concepts later implemented in his most famous works. 
 
Taliesin Preservation, Inc. was created to preserve the buildings, artifacts, landscape and legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright in Wisconsin. TPI’s mission is to conserve the masterful buildings and educate the public about the man, his architecture and ideas.
 
“Life At Taliesin” will be held on Saturday, August 27th, 2011. Registration for onsite and webcast participation is required. To make a reservation for this event, please call 877-588-7900 (toll-free). Cost is $250 per person. An event program, with full details and registration information, may be downloaded here.
