As a young Chicago architect of the 1890s who signed his drawings with a less-dramatic “Frank L. Wright,” his early work included many and diverse influences — some of which look back to classical antiquity, English Tudor, and many other unexpected sources. A new exhibit, Wright Before The Lloyd, explores seldom-discussed early projects that demonstrate how Wright’s path to becoming a modern architect had deep and far-reaching roots, but remained deeply entrenched in his Chicago experience.
The exhibit is on display in the Landmark Chicago Gallery located on the 1st floor of the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington St., Chicago.
Monday – Thursday: 9 a.m. – 7 p.m; Friday – Sunday: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. The exhibit is scheduled to run through mid-March 2014. Admission is free.
