150th Birthday Picnic and Party at the Pope Leighey House
Posted Thursday, May 24

Join in blowing out the candles on Frank Lloyd Wright's 150th birthday!

Celebrate world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s birthday on June 8 at the only Frank Lloyd Wright house open to visitors in the DC area – the small and magnificent Pope-Leighey House! This house is the perfect example of one of Wright’s “Usonian” style homes that he began designing in the 1930s.

 The party will feature birthday cake and pie and guests are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner. There will be themed cocktails, live jazz, a Wright trivia game with prizes and a special Wright- focused online auction.

The event takes place on June 8, 6:00-9:00p at the Woodlawn & Pope-Leighey House, 9000 Richmond Hwy, Alexandria, VA 22309. Reserve your picnic spot for $35 (a limited amount of reserved tables also available). Information is available here
