A FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT HOUSE designed for a medium-income family and incorporating his architectural ideals is the centerpiece for a traveling exhibition on his work, opening in Dallas Jan. 19 and then going to five other cities.

The house features an abundance of natural light, built-ins, and open spaces. After closing in Dallas April 17, the exhibition moves to Washington; Miami; Chicago; Scottsdale, Ariz.; and San Diego.
