The Kirkland Museum, 1201 Bannock St., Denver, announces the gift of a lamp, constructed from two pieces of Frank Lloyd Wright art glass (1903-1904), which will be featured in the show, “Frank Lloyd Wright Inside the Walls,” opening June 17. In 1964, art collector Bertie Slutzky purchased two pieces at a Chicago antique store, recognizing them as Frank Lloyd Wright glass. A local metalsmith joined the pieces to make a table lamp, which she presented to her son, Louis Newman, as a graduation gift. Mr. Newman and his husband, Justin Ferate, donated the lamp to the museum in 2018.
