Usonia Tour: Celebrating Frank Lloyd Wright
A Day of Contemporary Art & Mid-Century Architecture

Sunday, October 21, 2012
Leaving Smack Mellon at 10am 
Returning at approximately 4pm

Please join Smack Mellon Board Member Dara Meyers-Kingsley and her husband Evan Kingsley for Sunday brunch at their home and a private walking tour of Usonia, a historic post-war community designed by Frank Lloyd Wright less than an hour north of Manhattan.  A highlight of the tour will be a visit to the Wright-designed home of Roland Reisley, a founding member of Usonia and author of Usonia New York:  Building a Community with Frank Lloyd Wright. Mr. Reisley will welcome our group to his home and speak with us about Usonia's unique history and architecture. Signed copies of Mr. Reisley' s book will be available for $40 to benefit Smack Mellon.

Current Smack Mellon exhibiting artist Cheryl Molnar and past Smack Mellon Studio Artist Donna Sharrett will have work on view for purchase at the Meyers-Kingsley home, also to benefit Smack Mellon.

Tickets are $125 per person. Space for this event is extremely limited, as we will be visiting private homes. Purchase your ticket now to reserve your place and tour!
