America’s most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, created iconic modern buildings like Fallingwater and the Guggenheim Museum. This interactive presentation, led by art educator, Jane Oneail, will offer an introduction to Wright’s career and explore his final house type, the Usonian, in depth, with special emphasis on the Zimmerman House in Manchester, NH.

Jane Oneail, Founder and President of Culturally Curious, was leading tours at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston when she first began to appreciate the special magic that happens when people look at art together and share their genuine reactions and questions. "Talking about art requires bravery - you're inherently vulnerable when you share your perspective. There is joy in seeing things in a new way - and in simply shifting gears to appreciate the beauty and poetry of everyday life."
Jane holds a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Education from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. She is a NH native and has worked at some of the state’s most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane founded the Currier’s Alzheimer’s Cafe and led the tour program for the museum and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Zimmerman House. She has taught Art History at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at Southern New Hampshire University.
