A national exhibit on homes and interiors designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright opens Sunday in Manitowoc.

HTR Media reported it is the only Wisconsin showing of the exhibit scheduled.

The exhibit will be at the Rahr-West Art Museum from Sunday through Aug. 4.

The museum's executive director, Gregory Vadney, said it includes house drawings, photographs of interiors, sketches of interiors and some blueprints.

The museum also will show seven framed textiles and 10 furniture pieces designed by Wright with the touring exhibit. The additional items are on loan from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and several Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Wisconsin.

Wright was a Wisconsin native and long had a home in Spring Green.
