SC Johnson and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation entered into a long-term loan agreement on July 14, allowing the company to display artifacts highlighting Wright’s impact on families and the home. The agreement is an exciting addition to the wealth of Frank Lloyd Wright-related sites around Chicago, but raises questions about Wright’s place in popular conceptions of architectural history.
A forthcoming exhibit, building on SC Johnson’s long relationship with the architect, will be located in the company’s Wright-designed Racine, WI headquarters and include personal artifacts from Wright and objects designed for clients. Notable items include chairs from Wright’s homes in Oak Park, Spring Green, and Scottsdale, as well as pieces from Wright’s Plaza Hotel suite, displayed for the first time in history.
