“Marshall Erdman and ‘Wrightification’ in Madison”
Anna Andrzejewski
Professor, UW Madison Department of Art History
 
By the mid-twentieth century, architects and builders drew upon Frank Lloyd Wright's aesthetics to the degree that a widespread trend emerged, which Andrzejewski calls “Wrightification.” This presentation focuses on one Wrightifier, Marshall Erdman, and the ways in which he adopted and transformed elements from Wright's architecture in the postwar period. The speaker offers a fresh alternative to prevailing thought about postwar modernism and its supposed homogeneity.
