Sunday, October 1, 4 p.m.
We think of Frank Lloyd Wright as the quintessential American architect, but he had a deep relationship to the art and architecture of Japan. To mark the 150th anniversary of the architect’s birth, Kevin Greenwood, the Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, gives an overview of Wright’s dialogue with Japan, especially in reference to Oberlin’s Usonian house. He also talks about Wright’s work as an art dealer, referencing a Japanese woodblock print in the AMAM collection—sold by Wright. A reception will follow this brief talk.
