This month, June 2017, marks the 150th birthday of groundbreaking American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. In honor of his achievements, which range from Fallingwater to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Washington, D.C.’s National Building Museum will host a hands-on coloring space, called “Wright on the Walls.”
In this exhibition gallery, there will be an interactive, large-scale coloring book, featuring Wright’s works. In order to create the gallery, two local artists, Scott Clowney and Vladimir Zabavskiy, focused on Wright’s residential and commercial works as well as his houses of worship, automobile culture, and decorative details.
According to a press release, visitors are asked not to bring their own coloring supplies as washable dry-erase markers will be made available at the exhibition.
The museum also plans on hosting a “Frank Lloyd Wright Day” where visitors will be able to participate in hands-on activities and “lightning talks” about the architect. This free event will occur on June 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is open to visitors of all ages.
“Wright on the Walls” will open June 10 and run through September 4. Admission to the gallery is included in the museum’s general admission fee.
