Public Preview January 2020!
The Symphony Designers’ Showhouse is a Kansas City tradition! Each year, a Kansas City landmark residence is selected for the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse. The homeowners move out and a preview of the “undecorated” house is open to the public, for a Public Preview on January 11, 12, 18 and 19, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 each, at the door. Cash, checks, credit or debit cards are accepted to purchase a ticket. Visitors at the Public Preview will have the chance to purchase discounted spring Showhouse tour tickets at two for $30 (tickets normally $20 each in advance, or $25 at the door).
Next, local designers are selected to transform each room of the home into a design showplace. The “finished” Showhouse is then opened to the public. The Symphony Designers’ Showhouse is a benefit for the Kansas City Symphony.
The 51st Showhouse is in historic Hyde Park, and was built in 1909 at 500 E. 36th Street in Kansas City, Mo. Designed by architect Louis Curtiss for Frank Brumback and his wife, the artist Louise Upton Brumback, this gracious home retains many of its original features. Watch for more information coming soon about the showhouse public preview (Jan. 11, 12, 18 and 19, 2020) and designers. Tickets will go on sale in the spring.
