A.D. German Warehouse Is Focus of ‘Love of Learning’ Lectures

Three free and open-to-the-public presentations about Richland Center’s A.D. German Warehouse are coming up soon as part of the University of Wisconsin-Richland’s “Love of Learning” lecture series.

The three presentations look at aspects of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed A.D. German Warehouse, located in downtown Richland Center, the town where Wright was born.

First, gain an understanding of the “Architectural History of the Warehouse” on Feb. 19 when past board member of the Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy Jack Holzhueter speaks. Just who was A.D. German? Find out on March 5 when local history researcher Lon Arbegust presents “A.D. German and his Warehouse.” Arbegust will provide a biographical sketch of German and explain how German, Wright and photographer Albert Rockwell were connected.

“Preserving and Restoring the Warehouse” is the topic March 19, when Madison-based Isthmus Architecture, Inc. architect and alumnus of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture Peter Rott provides his perspective on what might be done to enhance the future of the Warehouse.

All three of the Warehouse-related programs begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Pippin Conference Center/Melvill Hall, UW-Richland, 1200 Highway 14 West, Richland Center.

For more information, contact the UW-Richland Office of Continuing Education, sponsor of the series, at (608) 647-6186, ext. 227, or rlnce@uwc.edu.
