    Throughout the fall and winter of 2018/2019, a team of craftsmen worked with painstaking precision to restore Evergreen's 1905 Tiffany glass and wrought-iron canopy. With work now complete, hear what it took to reinvigorate this Beaux Arts beauty from the master craftsmen responsible: Steve Dykstra and Lee Badger of Anvil Works, a custom metalworking firm based in West Virginia, and Mark Forrest West a Baltimore-based artist who specializes in antiques, historic design, and restoration. The illustrated talk will include a trip outside to see the canopy in person. A reception with the speakers will follow the talk.
