I have teamed up Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc for a poster series supporting the restoration of the historic Louis Sullivan “Jewel Box” Bank in downtown Newark, Ohio. WJE is part of the team working on the restoration of this Sullivan masterpiece.
“What a great series of three graphics,” said Rex. “The visuals includes a guardian lion, gorgeous geometric mosaics and ornamental terra cotta facade from the structure.”
The Louis Sullivan Building of Newark has graced the Courthouse Square for over a century. It was built in 1914, and opened as The Home Building Association Company, commonly known as “The Old Home.” In 1973, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Since early 2014, the Licking County Foundation and a team of community volunteers have been working to develop a plan for the Louis Sullivan Building of Newark’s restoration and reuse. The vision has always been to create a valuable space that is financially self-sustaining and open for the public to enjoy, celebrate and study.
