February 12–May 15, 2011
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, studio and school in Spring Green, Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Art Museum will present Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century, a major forward-looking exhibition of the celebrated architect’s seven-decade career. The exhibition will run from February 12 through May 15, 2011.
Examining major projects including Unity Temple, Fallingwater, Johnson Wax, Taliesin and Taliesin West, the exhibition will analyze Wright’s objectives through a twenty-first century lens. It will include never seen before drawings, scale models, furniture, photo enlargements, and video footage of his most important designs, to examine how Wright’s designs teach modern architects about today’s built environment.
Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century will be the first exhibition to consider Wright’s organic architecture moving forward, not looking back.
Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century is organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum and Phoenix Art Museum in conjunction with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Scottsdale.
