Manitoga opens for the season with the Russel & Mary Wright Design Gallery

April 18, 2021

Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center opens May 14 for its 2021 season which runs through November 8. The site will be open Friday through Monday with extended and special tours on select afternoons. Tours are 90 minutes and include Russel Wright’s modernist Home, Studio and Woodland Garden and the new Design Gallery.

The Design Gallery is a permanent collection gallery of Russel and Mary Wright designs for the American home. The Gallery will tell the story of how the Wrights shaped modern American lifestyle —from early experiments in spun aluminum in the 1930s and the colorful rounded forms of American Modern dinnerware to Japanese inspired patterns and textures decades later. The display of over 200 objects will be the only permanent, in-depth public exhibition of the Wright’s product designs anywhere. Read more from the press release here.
