The Frye Art Museum Board of Trustees and Director Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker invite you to celebrate the opening of

Leo Saul Berk: Structure and Ornament
May 30–September 6, 2015

Structure and Ornament comprises sculptural and video work by Seattle artist Leo Saul Berk as well as two new site-specific works commissioned by the Frye.

Berk spent the formative years of his childhood living in an unconventional house designed by the progressive American architect Bruce Goff (1904–1982). This residence in Aurora, Illinois, known as the Ford House, built in 1948, is a prime example of Goff's eclectic choice of materials, unusual volumes, organic forms, and dramatic use of natural light.

Berk believes that growing up in the house influenced his path as an artist. This exhibition brings together the complete body of work begun in 2011 that Berk has produced based on the Ford House.
