After a year of icehouse rehab, it’s been rewarding to add art and artifacts to showcase in this new space. Yesterday Susan and I returned from another creative collab with Nico Sardet at Furchgott Sourdiffe, mostly transforming and framing vintage artifacts that will be displayed in the icehouse.

This historic photograph was gifted to me by Essex neighbor and friend Todd Goff some years ago, and it stands as one of relatively few visual records documenting this iteration of Rosslyn’s waterfront.(Source: Rosslyn Bathhouse)
Soon it will be matted and framed behind museum glass to illustrate a no longer extant prequel to the lakeshore as we know it today.
