Lecture at the Barnes Mansion

If you are in Central New York the second weekend in June and are interested in the subject of this blog, I will be presenting at the George and Rebecca Barnes Foundation's annual  "Save the Mansion Reception and Tour" on June 8th.   I will be talking about J. L. Silsbee's interior design work, the remarkable Barnes Dining Room and his life-long relationship with the city of Syracuse.  It is a rare opportunity to see this spectacular space and to hear about Silsbee's work in the city where he started his career.

Do you know of a Unitarian church in Chicago that silsbe was working on when F.L. Wright came to work for him in Chicago?

Your research is great.

Thanks for the comment. Yes, Silsbee designed Wright's Uncle's Church in Chicago. It was called All Souls Unitarian Church. I haven't blogged on it yet though.
