Great news! Barnsdall Art Park Foundation has approved $25,000 worth of grants towards important long-term purchases for Barnsdall facilities. We have offered $5000 to each of the 5 facilities at Barnsdall — the Art Center, the Junior Art Center, the Gallery Theatre, the Municipal Art Gallery, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House — and have worked closely with the city staff and other support organizations to identify the most needed items.
To date, we have dispersed approximately $18,000 of the total funds. Purchased so far:
- A brand new piano for the music program at the Junior Art Center
- A Bonny Doon hydraulic press for the jewelry program
- State-of-the-art Sennheiser microphones for the Gallery Theatre
- Patio furniture for the Gallery for use during its openings and events
- New mahogany countertops that match the original kitchen countertops in Hollyhock House
Your generous tax-deductible donations and wine tasting tickets have made these important gifts possible. Please donate to help us keep Barnsdall as a vibrant and dynamic center of activity!
