2019 COMMUNITY LECTURE
FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 2019
Saint Louis Art Museum, Farrell Auditorium
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 FLWHEP has several opportunities for you to become involved. Contact us at 314 822 8359 or email@example.com if you would like to learn more about volunteering.
The FLWHEP relies on a dedicated group of volunteer docents to provide tours of the house. Docents receive training on the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright and the design, construction, and restoration of the Kraus House. If you enjoy learning about history and architecture and sharing your knowledge with others, this is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for you.
Volunteers can help with the FLWHEP annual fundraising event as well as periodic educational programs for the St. Louis community.
Grounds and Landscaping
The FLWHEP has occasional needs for assistance in maintaining the 10.5-acre property in partnership with the St. Louis County Parks Department. Possible projects include weeding, watering, and removal of honeysuckle
