The Wright Stuff: Artists Respond to the Work of Frank Lloyd Wright

May 29 - August 7, 2011

This RAM exhibition celebrates the arrival of works, including photographs, prints and books, created by artists and authors inspired by the legacy of this famous architect. Included are the 1980 print portfolio of Wisconsin artist Frances Myers in which she uses Frank Lloyd Wright buildings as subject matter, photographs of Wright buildings by Pedro E. Guerrero, furniture designed for various locations, a selection of books about Wright and facsimiles of Wright portfolios. These gifts, donated by Karen Johnson Boyd of Racine, establish an archive at RAM that showcases materials about the architect and provides a survey of the degree to which he has been a major inspiration for other artists.
