Two years ago, I took my husband to Buffalo, New York for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. I made arrangements ahead of time to go on an in-depth tour of this home--Darwin Martin House--which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. We could be described as FLW fan club members and have toured several of the buildings that he designed over the last several years. The Darwin Martin House is in a state of restoration. At one time, when the family fell on hard times, part of it was destroyed and some apartments were built on the property and the beautiful stained glass windows were sold to raise money to keep the house in the family. There is a group raising money to have new stained glass windows made and installed at the house.
Fast forward to this past weekend...My husband and I spent a day at the Detroit Institute of the Arts to see the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo exhibit. After seeing their artwork, we wandered around other parts of the DIA. One of the exhibits was an original stained glass window which was part of the Darwin Martin House in Buffalo at one time! It is called the "Tree of Life" window.
I think I have a new handwork project! I hope to have some progress to report by next Sunday at Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching link up.
