" Walls Speak",The Narrative Art of Hildreth Meiere

I recently visited this exhibit on the great Art Deco Mosaic designer, Hildreth Meiere at the Museum of Biblical Art in Manhattan. It is a beautifully executed show and her magnificent work made the buildings that it is incorporated into even more magnificent. She worked with the architect Bertram G. Goodhue, and other well- known  20th Century American architects such as Raymond Hood, Ralph Walker and Marginnis & Walsh. Click HERE to learn more and about visiting the exhibit on display till May 20, 2012.
