A Conversation on Creativity: Balancing Legacy and Experimentation
Russel Wright was a prolific mid 20th century industrial designer whose experimental home, studio and woodland garden, Manitoga, is a deeply personal expression of creative living in harmony with nature.

Our guest speakers will discuss ways to honor cultural legacies while carrying forward the creative and experimental impulse that inspired them. How can we distill the essence of creativity from the past and re-envision it today?

JOIN US for a lively conversation about building upon a legacy of passionate experimentation.
