Hershey, PA – The AACA Museum is teaming up with the Beth Sholom Preservation Virtual Fireside Chat for a special program focusing on American architecture through Frank Lloyd Wright and his infatuation with automobiles. The program brings together classic car collectors: Daniel I. Vieyra, a professor of architecture emeritus of Kent State University; Hank Hallowell, chair of the exhibits committee of the AACA Museum, Inc.; David Brownlee, Shapiro-Weitzenhoffer professor emeritus, at the University of Pennsylvania; and Beth Sholom Preservation Fireside Director. Together, the panelist will explore Wright’s lifelong love of automobiles and the eye-catching buildings, like Beth Sholom, he designed for America’s car-driven culture. Select automobiles, some of which Wright owned, will be spotlighted, including the revolutionary steel-bodied 1928 Dodge Victory Six, the majestic 1929 Cord L-29, the take-of-ready 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL “gull-wing,” and the big -finned 1958 Plymouth Fury. The talk is designed to inform our members and the community at large.
