Wright on the Park exhibit of
Frank Lloyd Wright and Japan
Currently on exhibit through December: “Frank Lloyd Wright and Japan.” The exhibit now at Wright on the Park features an extensive collection of Japanese art and artifacts similar to those that influenced Wright in his work. He traveled to Japan often, including a five-year period when he maintained an office there while he designed the Imperial Hotel and several other buildings.
The items on display are on loan from Anne and Roger Beermann of Iowa City. The couple lived and taught in Kobe, Japan, for 12 years.
