Lunchtime Lecture with Filmmaker Michael Miner
Friday, May 12th at Noon, Free
On Friday, May 12th at Noon, the West Baton Rouge Museum will host a lunchtime discussion with filmmaker Michael Miner on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright.  Miner’s latest film, “Masterpieces, The Most Extraordinary Buildings Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright” will be shown at the Manship Theater on May 11th at 7pm with a short Q&A following the film. Tickets are available at or call the box office at 225-344-0334.

Filmmaker Michael Miner got his start in 1991 at the Sundance Film Festival with the short film, “Glycerine Tears” and worked for a decade on commercial projects.  Since 2002, Miner has devoted his career entirely to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, documenting the master architect’s buildings in such films as “Sacred Spaces”, “A Child of the Sun”, and “Romanza”, which covers the California work of Mr. Wright.  Miner’s latest film, “Masterpieces”, highlights some of the most extraordinary buildings that Frank Lloyd Wright designed in his 70 year career.

This program is FREE and open to the public and is being offered in conjunction with the current exhibition, “Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture of the Interior.” Visitors are welcome to bring a bag lunch to enjoy during the discussion.
