• Milwaukee Art Museum prairie archives

    We visited the Prairie Archives of the Milwaukee Art Museum to do some research and to meet with museum staff about a possible collaboration in anticipation of next year’s exhibition on the works of George Mann Niedecken. Liz Flaig, the curatorial administrator of the archives, and the other staff were as cordially enthusiastic as we could wish. We were particularly interested, of course, in carpet and textile designs, so we focused on those. We looked at many original drawings and documentation for Niedecken interiors in the midwest, including several of those done in collaboration with Frank Lloyd Wright.
