The SC Johnson Gallery: At Home with Frank Lloyd Wright
The SC Johnson Gallery: At Home with Frank Lloyd Wright showcases rarely-seen Wright designs and artifacts. Through a series of annual exhibits, it is exploring Wright’s influence on families and the home.
The current exhibit, Usonia: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Vision of the American Home, which opened in May, celebrates “Usonia,” a term which describes Wright’s architectural vision for the development of cities featuring practical, yet beautiful, homes for the middle-class. Usonian homes took a new approach to construction, utilizing less-expensive materials and commonly excluding basements and attics. Within this concept, Wright pioneered new and innovative ideas related to energy, space and material efficiency.
This tour ends at The Lily Pad, a unique gift shop featuring exclusive SC Johnson memorabilia and brand gift merchandise, as well as Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired items.
