Frank Lloyd Wright’s Bachman-Wilson House, moved from New Jersey to Arkansas, is a prime attraction at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville.

The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville is planning to throw an outdoor party with live music June 3 at the museum's Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house, which opened to the public in November.

According to the museum's event schedule, the start-of-summer party will be the first time the house hosts an event for Artinfusion, a membership program for young patrons of the Crystal Bridges museum.

A light show will accompany music by Eliot Lipp, The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra and Orenda Cirque, the museum said in a news release.

The Bachman-Wilson house, built in Wright's "Usonian" style for a New Jersey family in 1956, was acquired by the museum in 2013, dismantled and brought to Arkansas, where it was rebuilt.

General admission tickets can be purchased for $35, and the event is free for Artinfusion members, according to the release.
