As stated in a recent press release:

Beginning May 19th at the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, Caulfield will exhibit a collection of his photographs taken during several years of working on the book projects.
 
Two of the books, Hometown Architect: The Complete Buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright in Oak Park and River Forest, Illinois, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Unity Temple, focus on Wright’s work during his years of living and working in Oak Park. A third, Prairie Metropolis: Chicago and the Birth of a New American Home, broadens the scope to feature work by Wright and the Prairie School architects he mentored and influenced.
 
From these three books, Caulfield has selected some of his favorite images for the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center exhibit. The earliest building featured is the 1892 Charnley-Persky House in Chicago, which Wright claimed to have designed while with Adler & Sullivan, and the latest, the Harry Adams house of 1913 in Oak Park. Between them, the exhibit features such landmarks as the William Winslow, Ward Willits, Arthur Heurtley, and Frederick Robie houses, as well as Wright’s great masterpiece, Unity Temple.

The exhibit will run May 19th – October 31st, 2012. The Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center is open daily 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. An opening reception will be held Saturday, May 19th from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., including a talk by Patrick Cannon. The publications listed above will be available for purchase and signing. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Light fare and a cash bar will be provided during the opening.
