New Frank Lloyd Wright Exhibit Gives You a Free Look Inside His Designs

SC Johnson announced the opening of a new Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit of his architecture and furniture. Organized with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona, it covers most of Wisconsin’s “Frank Lloyd Wright Trail” of buildings and includes 26 miniature scale models of his best work.

The new exhibit, On the Wright Trail, is located at SC Johnson’s Fortaleza Hall at its corporate headquarters in Racine. Third-generation SC Johnson leader H.F. Johnson Jr. commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright in 1936 to build the new corporate headquarters, which started a long relationship between the two. Wright designed several buildings and a home for Johnson Jr. which can be toured for free by the public on select days.
