Museum Store Event: Talk and Book Signing with Architect Robert Ooley

Mary Craig Auditorium

Please join us for a presentation and book signing of the book The Butterfly Wood House by Robert Ooley, FAIA. Robert has been a beloved Architect for the private and public sector on the Central Coast for over 25 years. He is an author, playwright and the Director of Facilities for SBMA.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Butterfly Wood house opens the door into one of the architect’s last commissions of his Prairie Style and is the only example of that time in his career on the west coast of the United States. Located in the secluded enclave of Montecito, California, at the corner of Hot Springs and Summit Roads is this 4,500-square-foot redwood treasure.

This story will weave together the family that wanted a coastal retreat, a world-renowned embattled architect, and the house they made together.
