TOUR OF FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S HOLLYHOCK HOUSE IN BARNSDALL PARK
LUNCH AT YUCAS LA, operated by Alum Dora Herrera '80
Join us for a tour of the Hollyhock House, the first house Frank Lloyd Wright designed in Los Angeles. Commissioned in the early 1920s by oil heiress Aline Barnsdall for an incredible 36-acre hilltop site on the Hollywood/Los Feliz border, it was part of a performing arts complex.
The Hollyhock reopened in June 2015 after a four-year beautiful, painstaking restoration that has brought many of its public spaces back to their 1921 beauty and magnificence.
The tour will be followed by a lunch at YUCA'S LA - operated by Alum Dora Herrera '80 - offering authentic Yucatecan fare, Burgers & Hotdogs.
