Dried grasses and seedpods. n.d. Photogravures on Japanese paper, page 7 1⁄2" x 2 3⁄4" (19.1 x 7 cm). Inset in William C. Gannett. *The House Beautiful* (River Forest, Ill.: Auvergne Press, 1896–98). Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University, New York

Join exhibition curators Jennifer Gray and Ken Tadashi Oshima for a special tour and discussion of Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive, focusing on Wright’s many dynamic, complex, and sometimes contradictory connections to the natural world. The conversation will explore Wright’s avid interest in farms and productive landscapes; his approach to native plants and indigenous landscapes; and his fascination with Japanese gardens and their impact on his own landscape designs. Special attention will be paid to his use of framed interior views of gardens, which resonates with MoMA’s own relationship between the Museum's interior spaces and the Sculpture Garden.

This event meets in the People’s Studio on Floor 3 and is free for members and Museum ticket holders. No registration is required.
