THE DESIGN, ART, NATURE EXPERIENCE
Visitors follow the upper Quarry path to enjoy stunning views of the Quarry Pool, House and Studio. An ascending stone stair leads to a mountain laurel grove and the exquisite moss rooms before visitors cross a majestic waterfall over a wood plank bridge. Once at Dragon Rock, the House and Studio interiors are defined by expanses of glass, innovative materials use, and seamless connections to outside terraces. Guests are invited to explore the new Russel & Mary Wright Design Gallery, built to permanently display the Wrights’ ground-breaking designs for the American home at Manitoga. The experience concludes by following a stepping stone path over the Quarry Pool dam back to the Visitor/Guide House.

NEW THIS YEAR: The Russel & Mary Wright Design Gallery at Manitoga, featuring over 200 objects from the Wrights’ ground-breaking designs for the American home, opens May 2021 with lead support from the Henry Luce Foundation. The Gallery will be included on all public tours through November 8 and highlighted on 2021 Collectors Tours.

On view in the Landscape: Tea House by designers Yoshihiro Sergel & Diana Mangaser.
On view in the House: Faceted Panel by lighting designer and artist Derek Porter.
