Frank Lloyd Wright house

A visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Meyer May house in Grand Rapids sponsored by Kresge Art Museum.
Designed in 1908 for the prominent Grand Rapids clothier, the house is an example of Wright's
prairie style of architecture with open, horizontal spaces. Restored in 1987 by Steelcase, Inc.,
the house is furnished with original pieces and reproductions in the style of the period.
