A successful fundraiser that begun in 1994, the Silk Walk is a project designed to sell engraved bricks for placement at the Landmark's front walkway, und under its grape arbor. Funds from the project are used for the Museum's upkeep, operating expenses and educational programs. This ongoing project is available for all to participate.
