"Taliesin and Beyond" Photo Exhibit at Wyoming Valley School

Opening June 2-- Forty never before seen vintage photographs of Wyoming Valley School, Taliesin, AD German Warehouse, the Wild Daisy, and other works by Frank Lloyd Wright and several apprentices are on display at the Wyoming Valley School. The exhibit of unique historic photographs, taken by Robert Hartmann five decades ago will be open all summer. Stop by during regular tour hours Sat-Sun 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to see them. Limited edition signed prints are available for sale.

Hartmann remembers, "My father introduced me to Frank Lloyd Wright’s work when he announced that he was taking the entire family to Racine to see Wright’s latest masterpiece-the S C Johnson Research Tower. It was 1950 and I was 8 years old. He was an avid amateur photographer and built a darkroom for me when I was in high school. I caught the bug and today I consider myself an advanced amateur. Photography expanded my view of the world. Through the many years that I was shooting film I loved getting my hands dirty in the darkroom watching latent images come to life in my developing tray. All of the photos in this exhibit were shot with film cameras."
