Captivating Objects at Kirkland Museum in Denver
Open June 16th, Kirkland Museum offers a look inside Frank Lloyd Wright's American architecture
Frank Lloyd Wright is widely recognized as an iconic American architect, but few people realize that Wright’s vision expanded beyond structure to include accessories and furnishings designed specifically to accompany his distinctive architecture.
Frank Lloyd Wright Inside the Walls, opening June 16 at the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Arts, is a fascinating glimpse into Wright’s genius. It features pieces from 11 projects spanning Wright’s long career, including the elegant Peacock Chair from the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and the one-of-a-kind Stenographer’s Chair from the Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Accompanied by historical photographs of the pieces in context, this exhibit is a riveting exploration of the relationship between architecture and decorative art.
