FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas Libraries’ Special Collections and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art Library and Archives is unveiling a digital exhibit showcasing the work and lives of architects Frank Lloyd Wright and Fay Jones.

The exhibit is being released to coincide with what would have been Jones’s 94th birthday on Saturday. The “Fay Jones and Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture Comes to Arkansas” exhibit is available online at the University Libraries digital collections website .

The exhibit documents the development of the notable architects’ affiliation, the architecture it spawned, the complex social network of Wright’s Taliesin institute and the lifelong devotion of a student -Jones - to his teacher, Wright.

Both men were proponents of “organic architecture” - the harmonious and seamless relationship between the built environment and nature.
