Famed architectural photographer Pedro E. Guerrero, who got his start with Frank Lloyd Wright documenting the construction of Taliesen West in Paradise Valley, Ariz., in 1939, is the subject of Tuesday night's Architecture and Design Network presentation at the Arkansas Center. The group will show the American Master's film "Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer's Journey" and host a panel discussion afterward. 

The focus on Guerrero parallels nicely with the Arts Center's exhibit “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” 93 works by 72 artists — including photographers — from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the upcoming opening of the Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian house at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville.

Guerrero, a native of Arizona with Mexican roots, gained fame through his 20-year association with Wright, moving to New York and working with architectural magazines and later documenting the sculpture of Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson. 

The evening begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. The film screens at 6 p.m. and will be followed by a panel discussion with Dr. Ethel Goodstein-Murphree, associate dean of the University of Arkansas's Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design; Brian Lang, chief curator at the Arts Center; and a nationally-known architectural photographer of today, Tim Hursley of Little Rock. 

The film and panel discussion are free. For more information contact ardenetwork@mac.com.
