Oculus Book Talk: "Building Art: The Life and Work of Frank Gehry"


When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM MONDAY, DECEMBER 14

Where: At The Center   

With Building Art: The Life and Work of Frank Gehry, Pulitzer Prize winning critic Paul Goldberger provides the first thorough biography of the world renowned architect. The book explores Gehry's work within the narrative of his personal life, giving the reader a new perspective on projects like the Guggenheim in Bilbao and 8 Spruce Street in downtown New York. Goldberger balances these stories in a biography that reviewers have called both "enthralling" and "revealing."
