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”

Outdoor Screening of ‘Inception’ October 4th!

The popular Outdoor Movie Nights return to Barnsdall Park on Friday October 4th for one night only with a screening of Inception!

Directed by Chris Nolan, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe, (and don’t forget the great Tom Berenger), this mind-bending film is auteur filmmaking on a grand scale.

Silverlake Wine will be serving wine flights and KCRW DJ Dan Wilcox will be spinning before the start of the screening, so come early and get a good seat to watch on our 20-ft outdoor screen! #barnsdallmovienights

Fun fact: Leonardo DiCaprio is a Los Feliz native, and took classes at Barnsdall as a kid.

Wine Tastings Extended thru September 27th!


The summer of 2013 has been our most successful year ever for our wine tasting season!  And because of their popularity, for the first time we are EXTENDING the summer wine tastings through September! That gives you four more chances to enjoy the food, wine, sunsets, music, and neighborhood togetherness that have made Barnsdall Fridays an essential part of summer in Los Angeles.

A big thank you to Silverlake Wine, KCRW’s Dan Wilcox, Jeffrey Herr, Leslie Thomas, Erin Senne, all the food trucks, and the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation members who have put so much love and effort into this season’s wine tastings, Avidan Ross and Hutson Morris-Irvin.  Thank you!
