June 5: Marin County Civic Center’s Nomination to UNESCO World Heritage List

The Marin County Civic Center, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is being promoted by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy for a nomination to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Why is this interesting? Because it would place the building we drearily enter to pay our speeding tickets alongside such world-renowned sites as the Taj Mahal and the Pyramids of Giza! Conservancy vice-president, author and director of Fallingwater Lynda Waggoner appears this Saturday to talk about the historic significance of the Marin Center and the nomination process; the one-hour lecture is followed by a reception with board members and Frank Lloyd Wright homeowners on Saturday, June 5, at the Marin Center. Board Room 329, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael. 11am. $10. 415.499.6800.
