Frank Lloyd Wright's Birthday Celebration
The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation will celebrate the anniversary of Wright’s 151st Birthday on June 8 with a special on Insight Tours at Taliesin West. The day will begin with tours priced at $18.67 in honor of Wright’s birth year and in the evening, Taliesin West will open its doors to the public for a screening of the BBC documentary Frank Lloyd Wright: The Man Who Built America at 8 p.m. in the Cabaret Theatre.
As part of the celebration, attendees of the film will have a chance to enjoy Frank Lloyd Wright’s favorite cake from the original recipe that was made every year on his birthday. A ceremonial presentation before the cake is served will take place as guests will learn the history and backstory behind one of Wright’s most beloved recipes and traditions.
“We want to encourage Arizonans to take pride in this local treasure,” said Jeff Goodman, director of marketing and communication at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. “By offering these unique specials throughout the summer to tour and attend intimate events held at Taliesin West, our hope is that it will give the community multiple opportunities to experience one of the most important architectural sites in the world right here in our own backyard.”
Tickets for the event are $20 for general admission and $10 for members. With space limited to fifty seats, the Foundation recommends reserving a ticket in advance.
