The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park will celebrate Mr. Wright’s 147th birthday with a benefit party, Midwestern Originals, on Sunday, June 8, on the grounds of Ebsworth Park.

The event will feature a concert at 3:00 p.m. by acclaimed musician Pokey LaFarge, whose creative mix of early jazz, country blues and western swing has put him at the forefront of American music. Pokey LaFarge, like Frank Lloyd Wright, hails from the Midwest and is dedicated to an art form that reflects his American roots. At just 30 years old, Pokey performs worldwide and has been featured on A Prairie Home Companion, The Late Show with David Letterman and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.

Guests will be invited to tour the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park; view an exhibit of woodcuts, lithographs and paintings by Midwestern artists; and savor Midwestern party fare, wine, beer, gelato and birthday cake in honor of Mr. Wright’s birthday.

The party is a benefit to raise funds for projects and programs of the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park. Event Chairmen are Debra Hollingsworth, Mark Stacye and Ted Wight. Jane Gleason is Honorary Chairman.

Individual tickets are $125. To make a reservation, please call 314-822-8359 or e-mail[email protected].
