Julie Sloan has been involved with the restoration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Unity Temple in Chicago a couple of years ago. She also wrote two books and a number of articles on Wright’s leaded-glass windows.  The Unity Temple project was very exciting and a highlight of her career. 

The project was much more than just the windows: it involved the entire building and restored both the exterior and interior surfaces, returning the building to its original appearance.  It was major undertaking and a very interesting project.

A film was made about it, which is going live on the internet next week.  You can watch a trailer and rent the film here:Watch Unity Temple: Frank Lloyd Wright's Modern Masterpiece Online | Vimeo On Demand on Vimeo

In addition, to follow the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy conference, Julie will be part of a panel discussion with the architect Gunny Harboe, the historian Joseph Siry, and the painting conservator Dorothy Krotzer on Sunday, November 15.  At this link, you can rent the film AND register for the panel discussion.UNITY TEMPLE
