If you are in Central New York on Friday evening (June 8th) and love old houses, I will be lecturing about the interior design work of J. L. Silsbee and his relationship with the city of Syracuse. I've never spoken to folks in Syrcause about my Silsbee obsession and I am guessing that most folks are clueless about his work and how indelible the marks he made on that city are. The lecture is at the historic Barnes-Hiscock Mansion. It is a one of a kind home with spectacular interiors and a very rich history. The reception starts at 6 and the presentation at 7.
