An unexpected and happy surprise entered my day yesterday with the announcement of a terrific book highlighting a project I was lucky enough to be involved with – a group of artists utilizing materials being removed from an historical building in Wichita, KS during a renovation – and repurposing (creating them anew) into works of art! I wrote an essay for this and now it is available in a wonderful edition you can peruse here:

we stayed in a hotel in Toronto many years ago that had a garden full of art from old buildings. Walls, carvings, gargoyles — it was a delight to wander through.
would be a great contagion!
luckily we remained infected only by the beauty of the past.
I will definitely be buying a soft cover copy of this! Well done!
ah shucks – thanks much
Absolutely! It is now officially on the way. Can’t wait. 🙂
A fantastic idea to repurpose salvaged materials into new works of art… hopefully, this idea will keep spreading.
Very cool. Congrats!
