The Wright Design Series

The Wright Design Series



All lectures are at 7pm in the Lecture Hall unless otherwise noted.

The Wright Design Series was inspired by master architect Frank Lloyd Wright who, although known for his architectural designs, also created designs in furniture, clothing, textiles and tableware. The free lectures and discussions highlight a wide array of design topics including architecture.

There are no Wright Design lectures scheduled at this time.

Here's what some past participants had to say about the series:

 We salute your broader scope and found the presentations all excellent!” - Greg B., Madison

“Loved the whole experience! Wonderful people!” -
Betsy H., Monona



PechaKucha Night


What is PechaKucha? The concept is simple: Each presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds apiece. It’s an event that is never the same twice, so leave your expectations at the door. Monona Terrace is proud to serve as the official Madison site for PechaKucha International. Cash bar on site.

"Reinventing Business x PechaKucha"
Presented by HTHH

There are many “tried-and-true” approaches for running a business or structuring a work environment.  Many are successful, most are traditional, and some are quite frankly, just boring!  Join us for “Reinventing Business x PechaKucha” to learn from those who have adopted a non-traditional business approach by leveraging innovative office configurations, management styles, and technologies.  You won’t want to miss it, as this promises to be an evening of takeaways for all attendees.

April 14 - TBA
