The Figge Art Museum will soon open its Frank Lloyd Wright gallery, a collection of eight pieces showing the architect/designer's "Prairie" and "Usonian" styles, documenting his shift toward ever-simpler forms.
The Figge describes the gallery as "a significant group of Wright's works that provide a chronological overview of his decorative arts and furniture designs. Although Wright is a notable architect, he was also an innovative designer of art glass, domestic interiors and furnishings, an aspect of his career that is less well-known to the general public."
Below is an edited audio discussion about the new gallery. Participating are Figge Senior Curator Greg Gilbert and Figge Art Museum Director Sean O'Harrow; asking questions are River Cities' Reader Managing Editor Jeff Ignatius and Quad-City Times Entertainment Editor David Burke.
