What is it Like Growing Up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House?
I am hoping to find a documentarian or small film crew interested in producing a program, movie or series of videos about What it is like Living in a Frank Lloyd Wright House. I am able to access many Frank Lloyd Wright-designed properties and draw out interesting stories about what it is like living with the public’s curiosity, managing constant renovations and enjoying inhabiting a work of art. www.kimbixler.com
I am an educator, lecturer and Frank Lloyd Wright historian. I grew up in a house designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1908 in Rochester, New York. My book Growing Up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House was just published and I can be seen in the recently released PBS documentary Frank Lloyd Wright's Boynton House: The Next Hundred Years.
In 2013 I visited and lectured at over 30 different venues (many of them Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings).
I'll be in Mason City, Iowa from February 18th – 22nd doing 9 school programs (first grade through college), an adult community lecture, a private event and touring the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hotel and Bank in the area.
I live in Los Angeles and will be speaking at the Modernism Conference in Palm Springs on February 15th:
Modernism Week Events: Palm Springs, California February 15, 2014 3:00pm
This is an unpaid position.

I realize this is last minute, but it could be an amazing opportunity to produce something that may eventually become a film, television program or even a YouTube video series.
Please contact me if you are interested.
