This week, it’s all about Frank Lloyd Wright. After a smashing opening weekend of events and nearly record-breaking attendance, as well as rave reviews by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel,, Third Coast Digest, and others, Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century is off and running.

On Tuesday, February 15, don’t miss a Gallery Talk of the exhibition at 1:30 p.m., led by Chief Curator Brady Roberts. On Thursday, February 17, stop in over your lunch break for an Express Talk at noon, and then in the evening, enjoy a lecture on “An American Home by Frank Lloyd Wright” at 6:15 p.m in Lubar Auditorium.

On Saturday, there’s even more to do, with Story Time in the Galleries at 10:30 a.m. (kids age 12 and under are FREE), a Book Salon on T.C. Boyle’s The Women: A Novel at 10:30 a.m., Sketching in the Galleries and Drop-in Tours at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Finally, Sunday is your last chance to feel like a kid again with Robert Therrien’s Under the Table, which closes Sunday, February 20. Bring the kids down to see this ginormous dining room table, then head up to the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio for “For the Love of Art” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Spring is fast approaching, and it’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy the art, and the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright.
