This poster, produced for an exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum, features the bold work of American architect and designer Frank Lloyd Wright. Beneath the gold foil letters of Wright's name is a plate he designed for Midway Gardens. Midway Gardens, which only stood between 1914 and 1929, was an entertainment facility on the south side of Chicago. As Wright often did, he designed every part of the space from the building itself to the plates on the table. This plate features simple black lines and squares of color, motifs that can also be seen in, for example, his stained glass designs.
