Museum Confidential

Dec 20, 2019

2019 marks the 60th anniversary (October 1959) of New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The Guggenheim was the final and perhaps crowning achievement of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. 2019 is also the 60th anniversary of Wright’s death (April 1959). All these decades later, the legendary architect remains a complicated figure. On this episode we sit down with acclaimed author and longtime Washington Post reporter Paul Hendrickson to chat about his polarizing and kaleidoscopic new biography of Wright, “Plagued By Fire."
