About the Marin County Civic Center: The Marin County Civic Center was Frank Lloyd Wright’s 770th commission and was completed shortly after Wright’s death in 1959. Conservancy Commissioner, Suki Sennett and former County Official, Joan Brown will be conducting tours of key locations in the Administration Building and answering questions.

Ever wonder what it’s like to:
+ Live in the public eye?
+ Play hide-and-seek in an historical landmark?
+ Manage constant (and costly!) renovations?
Kim Bixler ’91 does!

Her family owned Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1908 Edward E. Boynton House in Rochester, New York from 1977 to 1994. The Boynton House is one of Wright’s most stunning prairie-style private homes. During its construction, the world-renowned architect was frequently on-site, supervising all details, including the design of the furniture (seventeen pieces still remain in the house).

As author of the newly released book, Growing Up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House, Kim Bixler ’91 will recount the tumultuous history of the house through an engaging, multi-media presentation of family photographs, historical documents, and personal anecdotes. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear firsthand the unforgettable story of growing up in a Frank Lloyd Wright home.
