2018 – Landmarks Lion Award
Date(s) - 24/10/2018
Grand Central Station Oyster Bar
The Historic Districts Council holds a yearly fundraising event to honor those who have been especially influential in the preservation world. The Landmarks Lion Award is a prestigious representation of the work done by the recipients.
This year’s honorees have preserved or protected nearly every piece of architectural terra cotta around the city – from the Guastavino ceiling of the Oyster Bar to the terra cotta of the Woolworth Tower. Led by Susan Tunick, Friends of Terra Cotta has been the leading organization promoting education and research in the preservation of architectural terra cotta since 1981. Boston Valley Terra Cotta is one of the two foremost architectural terra cotta manufacturers in the nation, if not the world. In celebrating these organizations, The Historic District Council hopes to showcase the great public artistry of architecture.
Event attendees will have the opportunity to take a closer look at the Woolworth building’s stunning architectural terra cotta, which was painstakingly restored and recreated by Boston Valley Terra Cotta, from the apartment’s windows.
