Richard Louis Brown

Visionary architect, conservationist, and collector John Yeon was a passionate advocate for causes he believed in, yet in private he was soft-spoken and courtly, with a sly wit and magnetic presence. Richard Louis Brown, Yeon’s companion for nearly 30 years, will share stories that illuminate the life and work of one of Oregon’s most original personalities.

Presented in conjunction with Quest for Beauty: The Architecture, Landscapes, and Collections of John Yeon, on view May 13 through September 3, 2017.
