Lecture Series Focuses on Frank Lloyd Wright
FARMERS BRANCH/DALLAS • Continuing its new lecture series, the Brookhaven College Communications Division has two lectures open to the public April 5 at 1:30 p.m. in Room K234 and at 7:30 p.m. in Room B304, on “The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright.” Charles McAdams, professor of humanities at Brookhaven College, will examine the architecture of Wright, one of America’s most famous and creative building designers.
Wright called architecture, “the triumph of Human Imagination over materials, methods, and men, to put man into possession of his own Earth.” As someone who visited Wright’s Wisconsin home “Taliesin,” McAdams will share his love of the architect’s style and imagination.
McAdams has worked at Brookhaven College since shortly after the college opened as former chair of the Division of Fine Arts and Physical Education and as a professor. In addition to seeing the humanities department grow from one to five full-time faculty members, McAdams has led work to develop several online and telecourses in the humanities. He received the Excellence in Teaching Award in 1999-2000.
The free lecture series will continue in the fall. Brookhaven College is located at 3939 Valley View Lane in Farmers Branch. For additional information regarding the lecture series, contact the Communications Division at 972-860-4555.
