Rediscovery to Preservation: 1991 – 2018

Rediscover Vanka’s Gift to America and the origins of the community commitment to their preservation that has helped to restore and increase public appreciation for their national and international significance, inspire thousands of visits, and fund cutting-edge conservation and lighting.
