Frank Lloyd Wright’s Samara: A Mid-Century Dream Home

On View Feb. 9 - April 21, 2015

What is the experience of building and living in a home designed by America's greatest architect? How do you live in a work of art? Frank Lloyd Wright's Samara: A Mid-Century Dream Home explores the relationship between an architect and his clients, Dr. John and Kay Christian, as they worked together to create one family's definition of an American dream home. Told through the juxtaposition of original objects and furniture, architectural fragments, rare archival materials, historic photographs, and video footage, this exhibit explores the creation of a Wright house made into a family home. In conjunction with this exhibition, join us for an opening reception on Thursday, Feb. 19, from 5 -7 pm featuring a scholar's talk at 6 pm.  

This exhibition is on view until April 21, 2015. See more information here.

A program of ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance with The Oklahoma Arts Council and The National Endowment for the Arts.
