Art Matters did a September 27th tour of Kirk in the Hills in Bloomfield Hills

 

 

 

 

 Our private tour of the Kirk was a great experience covering the rich history of such a jewel in this city.  A tour of the entire church was a very thorough education – including information about the architecture, stained glass windows, artworks, tapestries, the gardens and so much more. A great time was had by all.
