On April 15, 1935, in the heart of Rockefeller Center in New York, Frank Lloyd Wright mounted an exhibit on a project he called Broadacre City, which proposed radical changes to cities and how we live in them. A veritable Trojan horse that challenged the very urbanity of the space in which it was installed, Broadacre called for widespread decentralization whereby communities would be based on small-scale farming and manufacturing, local government, and property ownership.
Join us on Friday, April 21, at the Saint Louis Art Museum for the annual Joanne and Alan Kohn Lecture. Dr. Jennifer Gray, Director of Taliesin Institute, will unpack the ways that Broadacre, though never built, was a vehicle to address pressing social, economic, and environmental issues, many of which have contemporary relevance.
