Photography Exhibit: Sacred Spaces: Frank Lloyd Wright x Andrew Pielage
August 23, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Sacred Spaces: Frank Lloyd Wright x Andrew Pielage is a new photography exhibit free and open to the public at the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center.
For the past decade, photographer Andrew Pielage has traveled the country capturing Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in his pursuit to photograph every remaining Wright site. Throughout his travels, he has photographed private homes, public spaces, museums, houses of worship and more. Each building inspires him in different ways, but the one thing that is consistent is the spiritual quality embodied in all of them.
The show features over 30 photographs of Pielage’s work from a dozen Wright sites, with pieces selected to highlight the use of light, texture and composition to create sanctified space. The exhibition is curated by New York-based architectural writer and curator Sam Lubell.
Wright always spelled Nature with a capital N, saying “You might say that Nature is the God of the architect.” Whether it is the deep reverence for the landscape, the incorporation of natural elements like light and shadow, or an intangible quality only possible through shear genius, Wright’s spaces all have a sacred quality that is calming, healing, and inspirational.
In his first ever public exhibition of Wright photography, Pielage brings us in to some of these Sacred Spaces, inviting us to discover and embrace the spiritual and inspirational qualities within.
The exhibition will travel to other Frank Lloyd Wright sites around the country, including Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania.
