Frank Lloyd Wright's Samara: a Mid-Century Dream Home at The Arlington Museum of Art

What is it like to live in a work of art? Experience the process of building and living in a home designed by one of America’s greatest architects in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Samara: A Mid-Century Dream Home. 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. An impressive compilation of original furniture, architectural fragments, rare archival materials, historic photographs, and video are all on view in this immersive exhibition. 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.

The museum will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 1pm to 5pm through February 17, 2013. It will be closed Mondays and major holidays. Admission is $8.00 for adults, $5 for seniors and students, and free for museum members and children under the age of 12. More information on the exhibit and the museum can be found by calling 817.275.4600 or by visiting the museum's website.
