Do you remember seeing these wonderful tile panels over a year ago? They are the THE EMPIRE STATE DAIRY MURALS! they have been SAVED along with the Century old building in Brooklyn to which they are attached!







Empire State Dairy



. . . as noted in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle dated December 5th 2017….
"
After years of advocacy by local preservationists and a year-long process, the complex at 2840 Atlantic Avenue, better known as the Empire State Dairy, was officially declared a New York City landmark!"

"The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted unanimously to designate the century-old industrial complex at 2840 Atlantic Ave., which is also known as the Empire State Dairy Company Buildings, as a landmark.
After the Preservation Commission's vote, supporters of the dairy's designation spoke about its significance to the Brooklyn Eagle. “This is the first step in correcting the narrative of East New York,” Farrah Lafontant of Preserving East New York said. Zulmilena Then of Preserving East New York said, “We're extremely happy Landmarks recognized there's a need to protect the building.”

She vowed that her organization will keep working to get the East New York community engaged and involved in historic preservation in the neighborhood.
Susan Tunick, president of the Friends of Terra Cotta, called the old dairy's designation “a tremendous victory for architectural ceramics.”
The new landmark, with its tile murals, will be a “great tool” for educating both East New York residents and tourists, she said."



Happy New Year THF
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Joy, creativity & very best wishes for 2018 to all Tile Heritage Foundation Sponsors, Members, Supporters & Friends.

We sincerely thank you . . .
Your multiple ways of contributing lends measurable strength directly to the Foundation’s role as “Guardian” of American tile history. In 1987 we never imagined what might be accomplished. Your dedicated support and advocacy over these past 30 years have provided valuable structure and resilience to managing the historic and contemporary records of tile companies, installations and related archives, photography, tile collections and library materials.

Tile Heritage staff and volunteers, their thousands of hours, are sustained by your support. They are passionate in their dedication to document and continue to develop the index of THF holdings for posterity.

Your Support makes it all possible!

We are looking forward to having you share in exciting events and activities with us in 2018; the Global Monumental Hand-print Mural Project being one of them! DETAILS!

. . . and 2017 End-of-Year Fundraising Success . . .
Members & Friends of Tile Heritage contributed over $6000 during the last days of December 2017. These funds have matched GRANT FUNDS dollar for dollar, doubling their value for Tile Heritage.

THANK YOU!

And if you remember . . . Scott & Nancy Wells of Wells Tile & Antiques in Los Angeles gifted Tile Heritage a historic Taylor tile table for an end-of-year contributor (name in a hat!) drawing prize.

We have pulled a WINNER for this lovely table: Tile Heritage long-time supporter, Regina Taylor, and she is delighted!

Thank you Scott & Nancy for being such fine 'cheerleaders' for Tile Heritage. Your contribution is very much appreciated!
