Focusing on the Future (and Frank Lloyd Wright)
It’s been almost a year since we announced our first major art acquisition, 1000 museums worth of art. Since that time, we’ve been integrating the acquisition with our core collection, and thinking about the future. Today we’re happy to announce that, with the help of “America’s greatest architect” Frank Lloyd Wright, we’ve brought that future into focus.
June 8, 2017 is FLW’s 150th birthday. We’re honored that the FLW Foundation chose our 1000Museums brand to design and make available a series of “Wright across America” commemorative prints for the year-long celebration (much more on those prints later). That honor crystalized our thinking about the future and provided us the first instance of that future as well.
So, without further ado, Art Authority is pleased to announce the first in a series of “Focus On” sites, “Focus on Frank Lloyd Wright.” The site includes a great collection of both time-limited commemorative prints and timeless reproductions of original Wright sketches and drawings. All have been approved by the Foundation, to which a portion of every sale goes. And all are of the museum quality for which the 1000Museums brand is known, printed on acid-free paper with inks rated at 200 years of permanence.
Beyond FLW, we’re also announcing plans for future Focus On sites for a number of other venerable American icons:
- The Library of Congress (founded 1800)
- The Boy Scouts of America (founded 1910), and their quintessential American painter Norman Rockwell (born 1894)
- Popular Russian-American artist Mark Rothko (born 1903)
- American abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock (born 1912)
These sites should be available this summer, with many of the works available now directly through 1000Museums.com.
As you can see, with the help of 1000Museums and Frank Lloyd Wright, our focus on the future is clear.
