Frank Lloyd Wright Open House: 150th Anniversary

Sunday, October 1 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Weltzheimer-Johnson House 534 Morgan Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

We think of Frank Lloyd Wright as the quintessential American architect, but he had a deep relationship to the art and architecture of Japan. To mark the 150th anniversary of the architect’s birth, Kevin Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, will give an overview of Wright’s dialogue with Japan, especially in reference to Oberlin’s Usonian house. He also talks about Wright’s work as an art dealer, referencing a Japanese woodblock print in the Allen Memorial Art Museum collection—sold by Wright.

A reception will follow this brief talk.

The Weltzheimer/Johnson House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1947 and completed in 1949. The house is open to the public the first Sunday of the month, April to November. Brief guided tours are offered on the hour, at noon, 1, 2, 3, and 4 p.m.

Admission is $5 per adult and free to students under 18 or with a college ID (cash or check only, please).
