Ellis Island Drawings to be Auctioned

[Drawings for one of Frank Lloyd Wright's last proposals](http://artfixdaily.com/artwire/release/9471-sloans-and-kenyon-to-auction-frank-lloyd-wright’s-“key-projec) , the Key Project for Ellis Island will be offered for auction by Washington D.C.-area auction house [Sloans & Kenyon Auctioneers and Appraisers](http://www.sloansandkenyon.com/search.htm) on November 14.

Key Project was Wright’s visionary solution to urban living and proposed apartment complexes, theaters, shopping, and other amenities in a car-free suburban environment designed for Manhattan commuters.


Never realized, Key Project was one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last projects before his death in 1959.

The first link above includes a very small thumbnail of one drawing -- far too small to get more than an inkling of the site's layout. With any luck (don't hold your breath) I'll remember to link to the preview of the auction after october 25.
