Fall Travel and Events: Wright’s Auldbrass, Julius Shulman’s Legacy

The new documentary on Julius Shulman by
Eric Bricker will open in D.C. on Nov. 6
As you are planning your fall calendar, here a few modern-related events in D.C. and beyond to mark down.
Head down to South Carolina Nov. 7-8 to visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Auldbrass Plantation for a tour and lecture of the architect’s largest and most complex project. Wright worked on the National Register-designated plantation on and off for 20 years. In 1986, film producer Joel Silver bought Auldbrass, and with the help of Eric Lloyd Wright, the grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright, he restored the property, which had fallen into disrepair. See images here.
Head north to the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh for Palm Springs Modern: Photographs by Julius Shulman. The exhibit, which runs until Jan. 31, features 100 photos of the late photographer’s iconic images of Palm Springs. I’m going to the exhibit this weekend so I will let you know how it is.
And speaking of Shulman, the film Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman will premiere in D.C. at the E St. Cinema on Friday, Nov. 6. Can’t wait for this.
