Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center opens May 12 for its 2023 season which runs through November 13. 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 award-winning Russel & Mary Wright Design Gallery.

The Design Gallery is a permanent collection gallery of Russel and Mary Wright designs for the American home. The Gallery tells 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 is the only permanent, in-depth public exhibition of the Wright’s product designs anywhere.
