The SC Johnson Gallery
Also opening today is The SC Johnson Gallery: At Home with Frank Lloyd Wright, a rotating selection of Wright’s designs and artifacts that explores the legendary architect’s influence on families and the American home. Located in SC Johnson’s Fortaleza Hall, The Gallery is the result of a July 2011 agreement between SC Johnson and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation for a long-term loan of a collection of Wright artifacts.
In celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birth in Wisconsin 150 years ago this year, SC Johnson presents the latest installment in the gallery, titled On the Wright Trail which includes examples of Wright’s architectural designs, furniture and textiles. Artwork from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and SC Johnson collections are shown alongside large-scale photographs of Wright interiors and many of the locations and settings of his buildings, offering the viewer an unprecedented opportunity to study the architect’s design practice across different areas, media, and time. The exhibition covers almost the entirety of the Frank Lloyd Wright Trail in Wisconsin — from both his youthful and mature experiments in and around Spring Green to groundbreaking homes in Madison and Milwaukee — through the inclusion of 26 models of some of the architect’s greatest designs, crafted by retired Janesville architect, Ron Olsen.
Along with The Gallery, SC Johnson offers The Lily Pad, a unique gift shop featuring exclusive SC Johnson memorabilia and brand gift merchandise, as well as Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired items. The Lily Pad is open in conjunction with all tours.
