The next weekend sees not only a symposium and benefit gala at Craftsman Farms, the New Jersey museum dedicated to Gustave Stickley, but a Stickley symposium at the Newark Museum. Also on 15–16 October—the annual conference of the American Printing History Association, with its traditional Arts and Crafts connections, in Washington, DC.
The cornerstone in a year of centennial events honoring Stickley’s groundbreaking achievement and celebrating his family’s joyous homecoming. the Craftsman Farms event begins on Friday, 15 October with a pre-symposium lecture at Craftsman Farms. Leslie M. Freudenheim, author of Building with Nature: Inspiration for the Arts and Crafts Home, will speak on “Gustav Stickley, Joseph Worcester and the San Francisco Swedenborgian Church.” Freudenheim will explore this National Historic Landmark church, its minister Joseph Worcester, and their connection to Gustav Stickley, who twice featured this church in The Craftsman magazine. A book signing and reception will follow the lecture.
