Classic Wright: Frank Lloyd Wright in Print

July 18, 2017
through November 3, 2017

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birth, Avery Classics Collection is exhibiting publications produced by and devoted to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The exhibition incorporates books from Wright’s own library alongside volumes already owned by Avery Classics. Thematically it explores Wright’s ideas concerning book design and the Japanese print, along with the reception of his work in Europe, mediated by publications such as Ausgeführte Bauten and the Dutch periodical Wendingen. Finally, the exhibition allows the viewer a window into Wright’s creative process, following the evolution of a single manuscript from handwritten first draft through to publication.

Through November 3
