NEW YORK (AP) - New York’s Museum of Modern Art will celebrate Frank Lloyd Wright’s birthday next year with a wide-ranging exhibit.

June 8, 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the American architect’s birth. The show will run from June 12 to Oct. 1, 2017.

MoMA’s exhibition will feature architectural drawings, models, building fragments, furniture, tableware, textiles and paintings. Museum-goers also will see films, television broadcasts, print media, photos and scrapbooks.

Some of the works have rarely or never been publicly exhibited.

The exhibition will be divided into 12 sections. Each will investigate a key object or cluster of objects from the Frank Lloyd Wright Archive.

The museum and Columbia University jointly acquired the archive in 2012.
