Sacred Spaces Photography Exhibit to Premiere at Beth Sholom Synagogue

Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation | Aug 10, 2021

Traveling exhibition of Andrew Pielage’s photography of Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Sacred Spaces” debuts at the Wright-designed synagogue in Pennsylvania.

Since its founding, Beth Sholom Preservation Foundation in suburban Philadelphia, has been dedicated to educating and engaging the broader community about Frank Lloyd Wright’s work and legacy.

Together with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Beth Sholom Preservation Foundation is hosting an intimate exhibit, Sacred Spaces. The photography exhibition will feature works from acclaimed photographer Andrew Pielage.

The exhibition launched at Beth Sholom Synagogue in Elkins Park, PA, and will be on view from September 19, 2021, through January 17, 2022. The exhibition focuses on exploring his work through the lens of sacred spaces and how Wright interpreted this notion through his architecture and design. Guests will have the opportunity to view images of Wright-designed buildings and to purchase limited-edition, hand-numbered prints directly from Pielage.
