Fans of the L.A. Municipal Art Gallery and sweeping city vistas atop Barnsdall Hill often gaze quixotically at the strange, early modern structure on the park’s southern edge. But few have ventured inside. The Frank Lloyd Wright confection known as the Hollyhock House (named for the botanical motif of its unique interior and exterior design) has, despite its popularity, undergone a series of troubled renovations over the decades. But the city swears this is it now. After three years in lockdown, the house is once again ready for its closeup. Following a mayoral ribbon-cutting in the afternoon, architecture aficionados are invited to climb inside for 24 hours of self-guided tours and the temporary lifting of the strict photography ban. Barnsdall Art Park, 4800 Hollywood Blvd., Hlywd.; Fri., Feb. 13, 4 p.m. to Sat., Feb. 14, 4 p.m.; free. (323) 644-6275, barnsdall.org. —Shana Nys Dambrot
