The Swift Collection at the new International Museum of the Gilding Arts in Pontiac, IL
This little burg, south of Chicago on old Route 66, already hosts four museums. We are very excited to have found a good home for the Swift Collection, with the bonus of a museum of gilding. We are planning a Conference in Pontiac in conjunction with the Grand Opening of the permanent museum scheduled to open in the fall of 2013. There will be plenty of updates, so keep checking your inbox and the TIP.
Community Project set for April in New Orleans
Looking south towards New Orleans, the April 2012 community project was a fantastic success. With the help of many eager volunteers we completed the Communion Rail next, with it's elaborately carved and decorated panels. Check out the Community Projects page for more details on the 2013 project.
