It has come to my attention that an exhibition dedicated to Russel Wright (1904-1976) is currently on view at the SFO Airport in Terminal 3. Yes, you read that correctly. The exhibition, Wright at Home: Modern Lifestyle Design 1930-1965, on through the end of October (check dates if you plan on visiting as I have seen several different end dates for the exhibition), is taking place at the San Francisco International Airport. While it may be cheaper for you, depending on where you live, to visit Manitoga, the Russel Wright Design Center, West Coasters also deserve to be familiar with Wright’s simple yet stylish designs for home furnishings, lighting, dinnerware and glassware. With 250 pieces, said to be on view, this is not a small exhibition and I appreciate that the organizers, San Francisco Airport Museums, whose mission is to “humanize the Airport environment,” thought outside the box and chose to feature objects of design rather than paintings.
