Community Programs at Monona Terrace

The Wright Design Series



All lectures are at 7pm in the Lecture Hall unless otherwise noted.

The Wright Design Series was inspired by master architect Frank Lloyd Wright who, although known for his architectural designs, also created designs in furniture, clothing, textiles and tableware. The free lectures and discussions highlight a wide array of design topics including architecture.

The Wright Design Series is sponsored by:
Southwest Chapter AIA Wisconsin, Monona Terrace and Frank Lloyd Wright® Wisconsin.

Wheeler presents the need for understanding the past to move things forward, which involves evolution and assembly not only of architecture but one’s own life. This is in part an individual reflection on the optimism of design practices, weaving in art, architecture and his own work, old and new where appropriate.

Here's what some past participants had to say about the series:

 We salute your broader scope and found the presentations all excellent!” - Greg B., Madison

“Loved the whole experience! Wonderful people!” -
Betsy H., Monona



PechaKucha Night


What is PechaKucha? The concept is simple: Each presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds apiece. It’s an event that is never the same twice, so leave your expectations at the door. Monona Terrace is proud to serve as the official Madison site for PechaKucha International. Cash bar on site.
