Exhibitions at the Speyer Gallery

Temporary exhibitions in Fallingwater’s visitor center are installed within the Speyer Gallery, a light-filled space named to honor the close relationship between the Kaufmanns and the Speyer family of Pittsburgh. The shows on view have supplemented the Fallingwater tour experience with topics ranging from collection highlights, construction and preservation histories, and insights into the lives of the Kaufmann family as well as the Kaufmann’s Department Store. On occasion, the gallery highlights the work of local artists as well as participants in the Fallingwater Institute’s Artist-in-Residence program.

Since 2011, the Alexander C. and Tillie S. Speyer Foundation has supported the exhibition program at Fallingwater, providing visitors from around the world an exceptional learning experience.
