The Frank Lloyd Wright At Home exhibition in Fortaleza Hall on the SC Johnson campus in Racine is expected to reopen the first weekend in May. The first year’s exhibit, about his Prairie-style work, was dismantled a few weeks ago. It had opened last June. The second phase of the exhibition is about his Usonian homes. It will be up for about 10 months until the changeover for a still-to-be determined third phase of the exhibition.
The photos below are of workers from the joint curators, SC Johnson and the Milwaukee Art Museum, and from Merchants Moving and Storage in Racine, taking down the Prairie-style artifacts. Many of the artifacts are on loan to SCJ under a unique 99-year loan from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. I expect to preview the Usonian exhibition for you in a few weeks.
