Did you ever notice the unusual “clerestory” screens covering the windows in the Weltzheimer-Johnson (W-J) House? We are proud of our Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian home, but this feature has always seemed out-of-place.
Taliesin design now featured as interior light screen
The original screens delineated a geometric and directional motif which would have drawn the eye around the upper circumference and down the length of the house. With Michael’s replica in place W-J House we can envision the different effect of the original screens.
Fresh new hassocks
In February three newly constructed hassocks will join the others at
the House. Freshman David Field spent his Winter Term researching
FLWright hassock designs and then building three in the Art Department
woodshop. Special thanks to Ed Fuquay, Art Department Woodshop
Technician, for assisting David.
The W-J House offers “Conversational Tours” the 1st & 3rd Sundays every month, 12:00-5:00 PM
This year we are also open last Saturdays. The monthly “Focus Saturdays” will feature conversational tours emphasizing a specific topic (such as decorative arts, landscape design, etc.). Watch for each month’s topic in the Oberlin college on-line calendar.
Oberlin College students are admitted free Others are $5/person.
