Art and architecture enthusiasts, rejoice: “Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless,” the popular pop art exhibition from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Spoke Art Gallery, will return for a second year in a row with a new virtual format. The exhibition—a collection of 1930s-era illustrations that offer artistic interpretations of buildings designed by the famed architect from over a dozen artists—will kick off via livestream on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 10 a.m. PST on the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s Facebook page.

The virtual event will begin with a “Taliesin Talk” discussion with select artists from the showcase. It’ll be hosted by Jeff Goodman, vice president of communication and partnerships at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and Ken Harman Hashimoto, curator at the Spoke Art Gallery. After the discussion, the exhibition will be unveiled on Spoke Art Gallery’s Instagram at noon PST. Pieces from the collection will be available to purchase on Spoke Art Gallery’s website, ranging between $40 to $75 per print. 

Artists include returning guests Max Dalton from Argentina, Alison King from Phoenix, Steve Thomas from Minnesota, François Schuiten from Belgium, and George Townley from the United Kingdom. Newcomers Jon Arvizu from Phoenix, Dave Perillo from Philadelphia, Aaron Stouffer from Phoenix, Bruce Yan from Seattle, and Phantom City Creative from Toronto will make their debut. 

“Our collaboration with Spoke Art is one of my favorite projects because it exemplifies the creative ways the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation is working to advance its mission,” Goodman said of the exhibit. “By asking this talented cadre of diverse artists to reinterpret Wright’s designs in their own style, we are able to inspire new audiences to discover and embrace an architecture for better living.”

Goodman added, “We know that more people will learn about the Wright legacy through this show, and it will challenge them to make, in Wright’s words, the ‘world a better one for living in.’”
