Le Quatre Vent, I had a lovely lunch in the big house with Mr. and Mrs. Cabot. Trout in Aspic was served, which I had never had before and needed to preserve the memory in paint, just like this fish in jelly.

Please read this about the late Frank Cabot and his work to preserve gardens.
In the summer of 1996 and 97 I worked on this fantastic project of urban renewal, The Skylight Opera in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. with a talented crew of people from the east coast and the midwest we magically (with a lot of hard work) modeled this new theatrical space into a venetian style opera house. Smack in the middle of the "Third Ward" which at the time was a dilapitated and forgotten area of town by the river The Skylight project lead this area into an artistic urban revival. They just had a 20th anniversary of the project and brought back Diane Fargo, who was the lead artist to give a talk about it. Here are a few good before and after photos.
