SC Johnson’s Frank Lloyd Wright Exhibit

Frank Lloyd Wright’s first architectural breakthrough came when he began designing in what he described as his “Prairie Style” of architecture. The style is defined by low-slung roofs, brick, and intricate details that all harmonized with the prairie landscape that surrounded Wright in Wisconsin, and Illinois. The video describes a gallery that is opening in Racine, Wisconsin on the SC Johnson Headquarters campus, with an exhibit about Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie style designs. As Lee B. Roberts writes in the Journal Times, “The exhibit, which will remain on display for a year, is the beginning of what will be an ongoing exploration of the legendary architect’s influence on families and the American home. It, and following exhibitions, will feature rarely and never-before shown Wright artifacts and designs from an archive collection of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.”
