Frank Lloyd Wright Inside the Walls

Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art presents Frank Lloyd Wright Inside the Walls June 16, 2022 through January 8, 2023. The exhibition will explore the relationship between Wright’s architecture and decorative art. Wright believed in the concept of “a total work of art,” with the accessories and furnishings of a building complementing the architecture to create a unified whole.

To be featured in the upcoming exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright Inside the Walls: Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art announces the significant gift of a unique lamp, constructed from two pieces of art glass (1903–1904) designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The lamp will be featured in the upcoming exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright Inside the Walls opening June 17, 2022. This exhibition will be its first time on public display as a lamp. Renée Albiston, Associate Museum Director, says, “Kirkland Museum’s decorative art collection celebrates good design. The gift of this lamp, which is a combination of two pieces by Frank Lloyd Wright, speaks to the importance of good design and the reimagining of beautiful objects for everyday use.”

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) was an American architect and designer. Decorative art objects from around a dozen of Wright’s building projects, including the Imperial Hotel (Tokyo), Price Tower (Oklahoma) and Austin House (South Carolina), are part of the permanent collection of Kirkland Museum. Wright designs at Kirkland Museum reflect the range of his work in Arts & Crafts, Art Deco and Modern styles.

Frank Lloyd Wright Inside the Walls will explore the relationship between his architecture and decorative art. Wright believed in the concept of “a total work of art,” with the accessories and furnishings of a building complementing the architecture to create a unified whole.

Presented by Deputy Curator Christopher Herron and chosen from the collection assembled by Founding Director & Curator Hugh Grant, this special exhibition is included with admission and does not require a separate ticket.
