DMA Presents Frank Lloyd Wright Portfolio

Dallas Museum of Art Presents
Line and Form: Frank Lloyd Wright and the Wasmuth Portfolio
Showcasing Works by American Architect Frank Lloyd Wright

On View January 30 - July 11

The Dallas Museum of Art presents an exhibition of sixteen Frank Lloyd Wright prints from a rare example of the Wasmuth portfolio, first published in 1910 and now widely recognized as one of the most important architectural publications of the 20th century. The portfolio includes ground plans, sections, perspective views, and interior details of Wright’s work to that date. The designs for residences, churches, and commercial buildings, skillfully presented in amazing detail, are drawn from the Museum’s collections.
The exhibit complements the DMA’s upcoming presentation Gustav Stickley and the American Arts & Crafts Movement, the first nationally touring exhibition to offer a comprehensive examination of the work of one of the leading figures of the American Arts and Crafts movement, Gustav Stickley. Organized by the DMA, the exhibition premiered to critical acclaim at the Newark Museum of Art in September and will open at the DMA on February 13.
Stefanie Kay Dlugosz, the DMA’s McDermott Curatorial Intern for Decorative Arts, will offer a Gallery Talk on the exhibition on Wednesday, Feb. 9 at 12:15 p.m. A variety of additional programs investigating the work of Frank Lloyd Wright will be offered by the Museum in the months ahead.
