Edgar Miller Legacy advances the appreciation of the life, philosophy and work of Edgar Miller.
In 1932, Walter Guest, an admirer of Miller, hired the artist to convert a 3-story-Victorian-era home into three duplex apartments and two studios.
Guest was a salesman whom Edgar met during the 1920s, and he served as the contractor for the project, with Miller and his crew of assistants providing the artistic details and architectural plans.
Quiet and elegant, the Walter Guest apartments have a cohesiveness and simplicity because of the control Miller had over the project, and the one-year timeframe it took to complete.
Apprentices on the project included Miller’s sister Hester, brother Frank, and Carl Street collaborator Jesus Torres. Kogen himself was not involved in this project.
