Former Daily News-Sun columnist Lloyd Clark will share memories of his February 1957 interview with Frank Lloyd Wright at noon June 14 at the Arizona Capitol Museum.
The talk opens a long-term exhibit: “OASIS RETURNS: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Vision for an Arizona State Capitol.”
While being interviewed by Clark, Wright spontaneously drew two sketches for a new Arizona State Capitol. The final design was called “OASIS.” Along with the sketches made during the interview, the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives have loaned a 9-by-12-foot OASIS model and a series of OASIS digital prints created from the original drawings for the exhibit.
This is not OASIS’ first trip to the museum. In 1990, Gov. Rose Mofford proclaimed a celebration of Wright’s architecture and Arizona’s heritage, and OASIS was on display as part of the commemoration.
Entry into the museum is free. For information, visit the Arizona Capitol Museum online at www.lib.az.us/musuem or call 602-926-3620.
