Arthur Erickson Tour
We have an extraordinary opportunity to visit the home Arthur Erickson designed for art collectors and philanthropists Bagley and Virginia Wright. I consider this to be one of the most important houses of the 20th-century ad will be publishing an extended essay on the house in the near future. The House has been sold twice since the Wright’s moved into the city. The first owner left the property untouched (and, unfortunately not well maintained). The new owner has reinterpreted parts of the house and we have an opportunity to explore his work in process - before they move into the house. Visiting the Highlands will also take you past the 1909 Charles Clarke House designed by Andrew Willatsen (Andrew worked for FL Wright in Oak Park Studio – we will have on display a Japanese Wood Block print originally given to Willatsen by Wright!) Tours will be by appointment: Limited numbers in small groups, masks required, and tours timed to allow traffic to and from the property. (We need to adhere to the restriction of the Highlands – Seattle’s most exclusive gated community.) Safety first!
