Magical Realism: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House

Hollyhock House was Frank Lloyd Wright’s first Los Angeles commission and an ode to California – its freedom and natural beauty. Built between 1919 and 1921 for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, its eclectic style combines elements of Mayan Revival, Early Modernism, and Wright’s own Prairie Style. The house has recently undergone a $4.3M restoration to return it to its original form and intent. Jeffrey Herr has served as Curator of Hollyhock House since 2004, where he oversees preservation and interpretation of the site. Mr. Herr is also Curator of Simon Rodia’s Towers in Watts and serves on the board of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.

The lecture is FREE but tickets are required. Advance tickets are available in person at the Museum’s Information Centers, through Metrotix.com (service fee applies), or by calling
