Frank Lloyd Wright and the Buffalo School of Arts and Crafts
At the turn of the century, the Buffalo, NY region was an innovative hub of U.S. industry as well as the epicenter of the American Arts and Crafts movement. The area boasted the lion's share of the most influential figures in American Arts and Crafts such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rohlfs, Gustav Stickley, Adelaide Robineau, Elbert Hubbard, Dard Hunter, Karl Kipp, among so many others—not to mention Buffalo Pottery, Heintz Metalwork, The Arts and Crafts Shop, etc. On the occasion of the 150th birthday of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, this international conference seeks to address the relation between Buffalo's Arts and Crafts innovators, the industrial prowess and character of the region, and the forces that shaped the Buffalo School of Arts and Crafts in this country and abroad.
