Glidden Homestead unveils new sign
DeKALB – A new sign designed and crafted by blacksmiths at the Joseph F. Glidden Homestead & Historical Center was unveiled at the museum May 18.
The ornate hand-forged iron sign frame was designed by Lucio Bortolin, a working blacksmith and member of the Glidden Homestead’s board of directors. For more than a year, Bortolin donated time and space in the workshop of his business, F2 Industries in Sycamore, where blacksmiths created the frame. 3D Designs of Sycamore produced the sign insert at or near wholesale as another sponsor.
A reception followed the unveiling. In attendance were DeKalb Mayor John Rey, city council members Dave Baker and Robert Snow, and Anita Zurbrugg representing the DeKalb County Community Foundation. A grant from the foundation helped make the new sign possible.
