Six years ago, another round of restorations began on the Hollyhock House in Barnsdall Art Park, the first house Frank Lloyd Wright designed in Los Angeles, built in the early 1920s for bohemian oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, and a public museum since the mid-1970s. Now, finally, the work is winding down and the remarkable house is readying to reopen to the public. According to a press release from City Councilmember Mitch O’;Farrell, visitors at the reopening in February will be able to “see and experience the house in much of its original splendor. Floors, windows, doors, decorative molding, and long-forgotten paint colors have been recreated with utmost attention to detail.”
