COMING THIS FALL TO ELMHURST HISTORY MUSEUM:


Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior

October 23-December 20, 2020

Frank Lloyd Wright created the visual character of an interior space in myriad ways, both obvious and subtle, with each object acting as an essential detail of the larger whole. Wright conceived every feature of the house to express a single vision—from the structure, to the interior, to the smallest details. Through reproduction drawings and photographs, this exhibition illustrates Wright’s passionate attention to those details and shows the ingenious ways in which the architect maximized the feeling of open space while accommodating the various functions for daily living. Architectural plans in the exhibit reveal the heart of Wright houses as large expansive spaces, from which subordinate spaces extended outward in multiple directions, like spokes radiating outward from the hub of a wheel. A national touring exhibit from International Arts & Artists.
