Marion Mahony Griffin: Rendering the Grand Variety of Nature’s Grace

Time:  2:00-3:00 p.m.   
Cost:  EHF Members:  $5; Non-members:  $10
Join us for a new series of Sunday afternoon programs for adults at the Elmhurst History Museum. Marion Mahony Griffin is known for a magnificent drafting style incorporating densely treed landscapes into architectural presentation drawings. She was Frank Lloyd Wright’s chief draftsperson for 14 years before embarking on a career with her husband Walter Burley Griffin that catapulted them from Chicago to Australia in 1914 after winning an international competition to design the capital city of Canberra. Author, artist and curator Debora Wood examines the trajectory of Marion’s graphic art—from children's book illustrations and architectural renderings to an exquisite series of Australian Forest Portraits. Marion’s drawing methods and her inventive adaptation of photo-reproduction processes will be discussed.
