Cleaning House at the Albright

Standard
Albright-Knox Art Gallery …. Published on Facebook today …So glad both Architects were named by the Albright … Hats off to timeless architecture & those who created it, and now to all who embrace timeless beauty and necessity of preserving it …  On August 14, 1961, the 1905 Albright building, designed by Buffalo architects, E. B. Green and William Sydney Wicks, was cleaned for the first time by Gallery staff. The process restored the building to its original appearance when its opened 56 years prior. ‪#‎throwbackthursday

About Stories, Old & New

My background is in Public Relations with a B.S. from Syracuse University. I would like to publish "Rabbitwild - A Shelter in the Wilderness", written by my Great Grandfather, William S. Wicks, a gifted early American Architect and Naturalist. Wicks, a member of the first group to purchase 100,000 acres of Adirondack Wilderness with the idea that it should remain a "forever wild" preserve, in fact designed and built "Rabbitwild" within the Adirondack League Club. And so, this blog isn't about me at all, but about remembering Wicks, his legacy, love and loyalty to natural design. By happenstance, he created the same appreciation in me for all that is beautiful, by nature.
