Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless
October 24, 2020 @ 10:00 am
The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and famed Spoke Art Gallery announced the popular “Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless” art exhibition will return this year in a new, virtual format featuring live-streamed events and limited-edition, Wright-inspired works from over a dozen international, contemporary illustrators and artists.
The virtual show will kick off Oct. 24 at 10 a.m. PST/1 p.m. EST with a “Taliesin Talk” conversational discussion livestreamed to the Foundation’s Facebook page, hosted by Vice President of Communication and Partnerships Jeff Goodman, Spoke Art Gallery Curator Ken Harman Hashimoto and select artists from the showcase. A live premiere on the Gallery’s Instagram page will follow at noon PST/3 p.m. EST to unveil the exclusive lineup of artwork featured in the exhibition.
Again this year, the pieces are designed in the style of a 1930s-era Works Progress Administration (WPA)-style travel posters depicting artistic interpretations of Wright-designed buildings. Among the list of participating artists are returning guests Max Dalton from Argentina, Alison King from Phoenix, Steve Thomas from Minnesota, François Schuiten from Belguim and George Townley from the United Kingdom; as well as newcomers Jon Arvizu from Phoenix, Dave Perillo from Philadelphia, Aaron Stouffer from Phoenix, Bruce Yan from Seattle, and Phantom City Creative from Toronto. Limited high-quality, hand-numbered posters featured in the series will be available to purchase at Spoke-Art.com as serigraphs or archival pigment prints, also known as screen prints or giclées, range in price from $40 to $75 per print.
The inaugural “Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless” exhibition debuted in 2019 with showings held at Spoke Art’s sister gallery in New York, Hashimoto Contemporary, and Wright’s lauded Taliesin and Taliesin West in Spring Green, Wis. and Scottsdale, Ariz. respectively. Despite the significant effects that arts organizations have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation and the Gallery chose to pivot the 2020 show to be online-only in an effort to maintain their shared initiative of inspiring and connecting with the global art and architecture community.
Spoke Art is internationally-recognized for its rotating pop-up shows that feature a curated selection of contemporary, pop-culture-inspired paintings, sculptures and illustrations from a collection of celebrated artists. Previously held at their New York and San Francisco locations, as well as in major cities like Miami, Los Angeles and Chicago, the Gallery’s themed exhibits have garnered admiration from a dedicated following of art aficionados and pop-culture enthusiasts alike that are always eager for new announcements.
