SC Johnson announced the opening of a new Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit of his architecture and furniture. Organized with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona, it covers most of Wisconsin’s “Frank Lloyd Wright Trail” of buildings and includes 26 miniature scale models of his best work.
The new exhibit, On the Wright Trail, is located at SC Johnson’s Fortaleza Hall at its corporate headquarters in Racine. Third-generation SC Johnson leader H.F. Johnson Jr. commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright in 1936 to build the new corporate headquarters, which started a long relationship between the two. Wright designed several buildings and a home for Johnson Jr. which can be toured for free by the public on select days.
The new exhibition is part of the company’s campus tour available Thursdays through Sundays. The one-and-a-half hour tour covers:
Foster + Partners-designed Fortaleza Hall, where the new exhibit is located
The SC Johnson Administration Building
Lily Pad Gift Shop
H.F. Johnson Jr. 1940s Office (weekend-only tours)
You can also book a free visit to Wingspread, the famous Prairie-style home Frank Lloyd Wright designed for H.F. Johnson Jr. It’s located 5 miles away from the headquarters and is Lloyd Wright’s last and largest (14,000 square feet) Prairie-style house.
