Manfred Müller (German, born 1950) merges abstraction and social consciousness, two typically divergent themes. The current pairing of exhibitions tell the stories of two locally based artists with “Objects are Closer than They Appear: Recent Works by Manfred Müller,” and “F. Scott Hess Retrospective,” uniting Manfred Müller’s spiritual and somber sculptural works with the visceral and vivid paintings of F. Scott Hess.

It’s an exciting time for Barnsdall Park with the upcoming public relaunch of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House in May and its UNESCO-nominated status. This is a growing LA cultural destination with amazing offerings including a first-rate gallery with a 10,000 square-foot space, an Art Center, and a host of programming. The quality of shows is first-rate and the 10,000 square-foot space serves as LA’s only municipal art gallery, showcasing top quality exhibitions that tell the story of LA-based artists.

Hollyhock House is Frank Lloyd Wright’s first Los Angeles project. Built between 1919 and 1921, it represents his earliest efforts to develop a regionally appropriate style of architecture for Southern California. Wright himself referred to it as California Romanza, using a musical term meaning “freedom to make one’s own form”.

Taking advantage of Los Angeles’ dry, temperate climate, Hollyhock House is a remarkable combination of house and gardens. In addition to the central garden court, each major interior space adjoins an equivalent exterior space, connected either by glass doors, a porch, pergola or colonnade. A series of rooftop terraces further extend the living space and provide magnificent views of the Los Angeles basin and the Hollywood Hills.

Selecting a thirty-six acre site known as Olive Hill, client and architect worked together to develop a plan that included a home for Barnsdall and her young daughter, two secondary residences, a theater, a director’s house, a dormitory for actors, studios for artists, shops and a motion picture theater.
