Frank Lloyd Write and the Foundation

Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) spent more than 70 years creating designs that revolutionized the art and architecture of the 20th century. In all, he designed 1,191 works — including houses, offices, churches, schools, libraries, bridges and museums. Of that total, 460 resulted in complete works, 384 of which still stand. Wright also designed furniture, fabrics, art glass, lamps, dinnerware, linens and graphic arts. In addition, he was a prolific writer, an educator and a philosopher. He authored 20 books and countless articles, lectured throughout the United States and in Europe, and developed a remarkable plan for decentralizing urban America that continues to be debated by scholars and writers to this day.

This exhibition is co-organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum
and Phoenix Art Museum, in collaboration with the
