1908 - Wright plays major role in important Japanese print exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago

In 1908, Wright participated in a second, larger exhibition at the Art Institute, featuring prints from his own collection along with works owned by major collectors, John H. Wrenn, Clarence Buckingham, Frederick W. Gookin, and J. Clarence Webster. Titled, A Loan Exhibition of Japanese Color Prints, the exhibition ran from March 5th through March 28th. Wright contributed almost a quarter of the 649 works that comprised the exhibition, a significant showing for his collecting efforts to that point. Again, the architect designed the installation and layout for the exhibition.
