The museum’s latest exhibit, “Wright Before the ‘Lloyd,'” which was curated by Samuelson, features several pieces from Wright.

Samuelson will offer insights into the famous architect before he designed well-known structures in the area such as Wingspread and the Johnson Wax Administration building. He will also share stories of the work he has accomplished throughout his career to salvage and collect what remains of Frank Lloyd Wright’s earliest works.

According to the RHM, “Wright Before the ‘Lloyd'” showcases the man who would become Frank Lloyd Wright and the personal and professional relationships that shaped him at a time when he was known simply as Frank L. Wright. Architectural salvage pieces, drawings and images from Samuelson’s collection are featured in this exhibit that runs through December 2024.
