A riot of colors and religious iconography, this home was designed for apocalyptic times

The Prophet Isaiah, also known as Isaiah Robertson, dedicated years to decorating his home in Niagara Falls with elaborate wooden cut-out shapes and symbols. His kaleidoscopic creations, which became increasingly ornate over time, stood out in the residential neighborhood. After Robertson’s death in 2020, the fate of his house was uncertain. To preserve the space, the Kohler Foundation stepped in and contracted an art preservation company to dismantle and reconstruct the entire site. The Second Coming House, as it is called, will be gifted to the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area and will open to the public as an art destination and community space.
