Wright’s Larkin: Arts and Crafts in Industry

June 18, 2017
through October 29, 2017

This exhibition foregrounds the remarkable synergy between the Larkin Company and Frank Lloyd Wright, two disruptive forces in their respective fields. Wright’s commission to design the Larkin Company Administration Building (1906) in Buffalo showed how utopian Arts and Crafts ideals and technological advance could come together in ways that significantly changed modern industry. This exhibition gathers together many never before seen Wright-designed objects from the now destroyed Larkin Building, along with a spectacular collection of Larkin products. Complementing the exhibition will be an international conference on the architect and the Buffalo School of Arts and Crafts, to be held in October at the University at Buffalo.

Through October 29
Hayes Hall, University of Buffalo
