Frank Lloyd Wright’s Gordon House Annual Benefit

19 Aug 2015 10:59 AM | Oregon Museums Association (Administrator)

The Gordon House Conservancy will hold the 13th Annual Taste of Frank Lloyd Wright on September 25, starting at 5 p.m. at the Eastbank Contractor Appliances Showroom at 800 SE Hawthorne Blvd. in Portland. The event will bring together well-known northwest chefs providing cooking demonstrations in state-of- the-art kitchen technology showrooms. Oregon breweries and wineries led by Advanced Sommelier Robert Volz will provide tastes for event guests to sample and sample again. 


All proceeds will benefit the preservation and restoration of the one, and only, Frank Lloyd Wright building in Oregon and the only one open to the public in the Pacific Northwest. Crucial restoration work still needs to be completed to the Gordon House which will contribute dramatically to the visitor’s experience and appreciation of this historic Frank Lloyd Wright structure in Silverton. 


Tickets can be purchased today at http://www.thegordonhouse.org/eventscoming.html $60 per person or two for $100 with early-bird specials including guided tour tickets to the house in Silverton. Table sponsorships with benefits are available. 


Frank Lloyd Wright, considered by many to be the greatest American architect of the 20t century, designed the house for Conrad and Evelyn Gordon in 1957 to be built on their Oregon farm in Clackamas County. Construction of the three-bedroom, three-bath home was finally completed in 1964. With the passing of Evelyn in 1997, preservationists and architecture fans made a concerted effort to save the house from demolition and move it 24 miles to Silverton next to The Oregon Garden. The home was carefully reconstructed and opened to the public in March 2002. The house is a demonstration of significant innovations by Wright and his organic architectural concepts. His modern style was considered fresh and original. Frank Lloyd Wright also utilized every space in his buildings and designed them with great minimalism and functionality in mind. This house is iconic and a treasure for all Oregonians.
