The Ulrich Architecture and Design Gallery at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts
The Minneapolis Institute of Arts boasts one of the top three collections of Prairie School objects in the United States. It has been built mainly over the past twenty years through purchases and generous gifts. The museum’s outstanding collection includes furniture, architectural fragments, art-glass windows, and a rare example of Prairie School silver. In 1998, the Institute completed the Ulrich Architecture and Design Gallery to house the majority of the collection. The Ulrich Gallery’s warm color and wood trim form an ideal backdrop for objects including Frank Lloyd Wright’s hallway from the Francis Little House and a large art-glass skylight from the Madison State Bank by Purcell and Elmslie.
