DEXTER: Chelsea artisan creates stained-glass windows for Dexter District Library

Date: 27 October 2011
The Dexter District Library on Alpine Street is sporting a brand new look, with three stained glass windows installed Oct. 19, the work of artisan Bill Darwin II, owner of Darwin's Stained Glass Studio located in the Waterloo Recreation Area near Chelsea.

Last winter, Darwin was contacted by Joy Naylor of Ann Arbor-based Distinct Designs Inc., who teams with longtime business associate Diane Bennett of Budding Art Ideas for art to exhibit in business environments. The pair used to be curators for five art gallery areas at Pfizer Global Research in Ann Arbor.

Darwin, who first learned the fine art of stained glass in the early 70s from his grandfather, provided design ideas and met with the Dexter District Library board and Distinct Designs several times in the spring.

His inspiration came from the library's overall appearance.
