Barnsdall Art Park Foundation Supports Hollyhock House’s Bid to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site

 

Barnsdall Art Park Foundation has been working with Hollyhock House’s curator Jeffrey Herr to support our beloved house’s candidacy for a UNESCO World Heritage Listing along with several other Frank Lloyd Wright buildings.  That quest is now in jeopardy due to the US government’s non-payment of UN dues.  We sent the below letter to our U.S. Senators, and are working with other local support groups to do the same.

Email us to get involved, or tweet the following: “@SenFeinstein @SenatorBoxer Support #HollyhockHouse‘s bid to become a World Heritage Site http://www.barnsdall.org/?p=898 @barnsdall”
