From Within Outward: Frank Lloyd Wright at the Guggenheim

Last week I went with my sister to see the current exhibit at the Guggenheim - From Within Outward, a display of Frank Lloyd Wright's work both built and unbuilt. The exhibit coincides with the Guggenheim Museum's 50th birthday and is co-organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

The exhibit is on display along the spiraling ramps of the Guggenheim, designed by Wright himself and completed just 6 months after his death. In the show are a variety of projects covering everything from civic buildings to religious buildings, to private residences, to desert resorts, and Wright's own home, named Taliesin, as well. There are models, photos, and original drawings by Wright from his 72 year career as one of the most influential and innovative architects of the 20th century.

The exhibit is up until August 23rd, so there's still time!
