Frank Lloyd Wright design to immeasurably improve otherwise boring building wall

We should really be painting Frank Lloyd Wright patterns on all our walls

Springfield, Illinois, where Frank Lloyd Wright (whose birthday it is today) built his famous Dana-Thomas House, will soon be getting a tiny bit more FLW in the form of a mural on one of its downtown buildings. The mural, painted by artist Troy Freeman with permission from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, will feature a sumac design reminiscent of one Wright used in the Dana-Thomas House. It seems like all of the locals, or at least all of the locals that the State Journal-Register spoke to, are one hundred percent on board with the project—rare for a public art installation, but not surprising in this particular case.
