The Arlington Museum of Art is very excited to announce our winter exhibition with Frank Lloyd Wright's Samara: A Mid-Century Dream Home. This winter, from December 1 - February 17, 2013, you can experience the process of building and what it is like living in a home designed by one of America's greatest architects, Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Samara house, also known as John E. Christian House, was built between 1954 and 1956 in West Lafayette, Indiana. The exhibition explores the creation of a Wright house through the eyes of a client who spent more than fifty years fulfilling the renowned architect's Usonian vision. This immersive exhibit will feature an impressive compilation of original furniture, architectural fragments, rare archival materials, historic photographs, and videos. Visitors to Frank Lloyd Wright's Samara have the unique opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the values of a young Indiana couple worked in tandem with Wright's vision to create one family's definition of an American dream home.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Samara: A Mid-Century Dream Home is curated by Scott W. Perkins, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at Price Tower Arts Center, Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The exhibition is toured by ExhibitsUSA, a national program of Mid-America Arts Alliance.
